We created our annual Meeting TENTS Fellowship Program so we could help support and resource those making a difference in their communities. Our team strives to come alongside community leaders to provide assistance on projects or assessments, health education materials, resources, a financial stipend, and monthly connection to help support the work that’s already being done.
We're excited for our three fellows in this year's program and would like to introduce Daniel, Joanna, and Anna.
Daniel and his wife, Susan, moved to a rural community in Uganda plagued by crime and no education. They could see potential when no one else could.
Fast forward about 15 years and now they run a primary school, a church, and meet many needs in the community such as access to water and food. Their hearts continue to grow as they see real community transformation.
Anna lives in the Philippines and serves those in her community. She helps provide maintenance care for adults diagnosed with cardiovascular disease and diabetes. She conducts health screenings and home visits to improve access to care.
She has also been part of our health education training programs and conducts health education on topics such as diabetes, heart disease, COVID and more. We are honored to continue working with her as she reaches out to those who have limited access to care.
Joanna recently graduated from Kyambogo University and lives in Uganda. Her heart is set on helping her community thrive. She has a particular interest in women's hygiene and education for children.
This is an image of a community cleanup day with a local school that Joanna coordinated. The students spent the day making their neighborhood look amazing, and Joanna led by example. The Mayor of Buikwe and the Deputy Mayor came out to help and provided a tractor for waste removal.
We are so excited to journey with our fellows this year. We believe the impact of this program will make a mark on communities for years to come!
