Meet the Interns! - Morgan Judge

Our final Summer 2014 intern has arrived! Morgan travelled to Jinja, Uganda just one week ago from Illinois to be our photography intern!

Meet the Interns! - Hannah Davis

We want to extend a warm welcome to our first two Summer 2014 interns! You know they’re keepers when they arrive at 5:30am, sleep for an hour, and join us on a full day jigger removal/shoe drop. They were troopers and slipped right into their roles with unbelievable ease. I cannot wait to see where this summer takes them – they are rockstars already. Today we introduce you to Hannah. She hails from Fort Wayne, Indiana where she goes to school at Indiana Wesleyan University. She has such a fun personality, a great taste in music, and can often be found perusing Pinterest. Here are a few fun facts about her.   Age: 19 Favorite color: Yellow Major: Social Work...

Meet the Interns! - Mini Banks

We have been so blessed by Cultivate Wines and their support of Sole Hope, so when co-founder, Ali Banks, wrote us and said her daughter was interested in spending some time with us in Uganda, we jumped at the chance to meet another member of this wonderful family! Mini Banks joined our team at the beginning of February, and we were so excited to have her. We are thankful that she chose to come serve alongside Sole Hope! The entire Banks family is planning a trip to Uganda this summer to join us on the ground and use their hands and feet to provide hope for the children we work with!   We'd like you all to meet Mini!   "My...
