Nicole and Elizabeth, both teachers, traveled to Senegal to explore a partnership with West African Reformed Mission and their educational efforts.

“In visiting the schools and talking with the teachers, we witnessed and heard about the many challenges the teachers face, including lack of resources and finances, poor classroom conditions, and many more. However, as we listened and acknowledged that these situations must be very challenging and discouraging for them, the teachers all replied, 'Of course it’s hard, but we’re here because we love the children.' As an educator who faces many similar challenges, though in different ways here in America, I found this to be extremely inspiring.”
