Heidi Krutzen writes from Zambia:

We have met a great young lady, Beene, from Mujika who has asked for funding to write her exam to teach primary school.  There is such a huge need for teachers here – last year two grades at the Malambu School had no teacher.  We are really excited that Beene would like to teach at the Malambu School until she writes her exam in November and hopefully afterward.  She can’t be paid until after her exam, so we are going to try to help with her living expenses.  It is a very long distance from Mujika to the school so we are going to see if there is an available house in the compound for her as well.  She came to the house today soaking wet up to her shoulders – the river must be very high right now so another reason why we hope to find a house here.
