It is always such a pleasure to do something that results in real benefits to others. I think most people like to give and will participate if given the opportunity. That is why I feel so proud of “one of our own” at LexisNexis for starting an organization that has far-reaching results to so many people in different ways. Learning about the needs in Kenya and other parts of Africa is a mind opening experience. When I see the reaction of those participating in the simple task of stringing beads at our internal CARES events, that so simple an act can result in so many people having clean water for a very long time, it is just a wonderful feeling.

I have worked alongside Just One Africa, as a teacher club sponsor at South Forsyth Middle School for three years. JOA has grown tremendously in the last three years, reaching more and more people both in Kenya and here in the states. Educating young and old about Clean Water and various Sustainability Programs in Kenya has brought the global issues into our classroom. Students here at SFMS play a small part in Just One Africa’s mission allowing them the experience of being a “World Changer” through beading bracelets , letter writing, collecting supplies, and speaking. Our students are Making A Difference One Life At A Time!
Thank you Just One Africa for allowing us to walk alongside you in your mission.
