Leah did her thesis work in South Africa. She was studying church-based HIV/AIDS organizations and developing a model of best practices that could be applied elsewhere. During the four months we spent there, we met hundreds of incredible people who were serving their neighbors and communities in innovative ways.
I have way too many “favorite photos” from that trip, but this one has remained at the top for me.
This woman was a community leader in a rural village outside Durban, South Africa. She would walk many miles in the course of each day to check in on people who were sick. We were lucky enough to be invited to join her on her rounds for the day.
