kirstin dykes, disaster risk reduction

Kirstin had just finished her second year of medical school and wanted to use her three-and-a-half month summer holiday to serve God and people (or "do something useful").  She has been working with  the DRR/ZAP office to develop a course of nutrition, sanitation and health lessons. Developing a course for a target audience of a completely different culture can be hit-and-miss, so much of Kirstin's work has been road-testing the lessons in two of the villages where ZAP works. This has allowed her to spend lots of time in the field, which makes her very happy!

kathleen jarvis, water & sanitation

Kathleen is an Environmental Engineering student who was excited to combine engineering and missions to create a positive impact in the developing world. While working in the WatSan department, Kathleen assisted with everything from baseline surveys, shallow well digging, borehole rehabilitation, monitoring and evaluation, and water testing. Aside from helping out with these project activities, she has also been researching and developing a plan that will focus on Malawi's long term water accessibility, quality, and treatment.

kristina lugo, communications

As a recent university graduate, Kristina wanted to use her first vacation in 5 years to show God's love by doing God's work. She believes that she had the best job because it allowed her to visit, learn and shoot photos of all the different programs. From well rehabilitations to dancing with orphans to (her favourite) food processing demonstrations, she experienced it all. Her main duty was to design and develop the EI Malawi website and promotional materials in hopes of attracting funders, employees, and visitors to EI Malawi.
