A Summer Intern is Ready to Serve By: Audrey Wright

Ever since traveling to Swaziland with Heart for Africa in 2010, I have yearned to come back. This summer I have been given the incredible opportunity to be an intern on Project Canaan, the Heart for Africa site in Swaziland. My primary assignment will be to construct biographies for all of the El Roi babies. I’ll also be helping out with & writing about some of Heart for Arica’s other involvements, such as TOMS shoes distribution and the Feed My Starving Children program.

There are so many neat things about my internship that I can’t think of anything I am not excited about! What I’m looking forward to most would have to be meeting the little ones of the El Roi Baby Home! I have been following all of their stories and praying for them ever since David arrived last year. It will be so incredible to get to know each of them while I put together their profiles. I’m also very excited to be living on the Project Canaan farm; I am studying locally based agriculture in college, so the prospect of one farm feeding a country is intriguing to me. Since I am a huge TOMS fan, I am really looking forward to seeing the other side of the “One for One” campaign as I give out shoes to those who may not have any. And finally, I can’t wait to learn more about and be a part of the Feed My Starving Children program that, in partnership with HFA, serves 74,000 hot meals to children every week.

If you couldn’t already tell, I really can’t wait!!!
