Nine Jamestown College students and two staff members have arrived in Chogoria, Kenya to practice servant leadership, learn about another culture, and gain experience in their respective fields of study.
While Jamestown College nursing students have traveled to Chogoria for the past few years, this is the first trip to the village for students from other majors. The students will spend time teaching in local schools, working at a small business lending firm, caring for children at a daycare facility, and assessing the village’s technological needs.
Mass communication graduate Rhonni LaCroix is writing a blog about the group’s experiences. She’ll also share the stories of the people of Chogoria through articles and video.
A grant from F.I.S.H. Foundation, Inc., is supporting the trip as well as the ongoing partnership between the Jamestown College Department of Nursing and Chogoria Hospital.
