Impressive Ludington Library in Brwn Mawr, Pennsylvania was the setting for Alpha Delta Kappa Sorority’s monthly meeting On Thursday evening, September 26, 2013. Sarah Anne Smith, Hope for Change International’s South Asia Director, was the featured guest speaker at the Zeta Chapter of Professional Educators who emphasized “World Understanding” as the theme for the gathering.
In attendance were Chapter Officers and active members who came with eager hearts to learn of education projects funded by Hope For Change International’s friends and supporters. ADK, Zeta Chapter adopts a non-profit organization each year and promotes that organization’s endeavors through local media and awareness campaigns. Hope For Change International has applied for adoption for the coming 2014 Year.
During her presentation Sarah provided her audience with an overview of all H4C projects and an in-depth description of Nagaland Children’s Residential School, its staff and student population, and medical and water-sourcing needs. Using MBELE blog site, Sarah offered an up-close view of the recently completed Bore Well on Mokokchung Campus.
Sorority member, Mary R. Brown, who had arranged the details for the September 26th agenda, also coordinated filming of Ms. Smith’s speaking for airing on Lower Merion/Narberth Public Access TV sometime later in October. Sophie Bennett, a tenth grade student and media arts apprentice, attended the ADK meeting for the purpose of videography.
In the few weeks leading up to ADK’s September meeting active members shopped and collected school supplies as a first measure of support for H4C’s students in other countries. Susan Raiders, Zeta Chapter President, presented the collections to Ms. Smith at the conclusion of her speaking. Within a few months these supplies will find themselves in the eager and grateful hands of H4C children. Thank you, Members of ADK Sorority, Zeta Chapter, for your thoughtfulness and generosity!
