All Africa Mormon Helping Hands Day - August 21st

This is a LDS Church sponsored service project throughout all of Africa. All Mormon church units throughout all of Africa perform a service project on this day. The projects range from planting trees, to cleaning local communities. These images are of the Kilili Branch that we attend. Over 45 members and 15 non-members helped clean, and burn leaves, branches and other debris from the village market roads and a nearby Health Clinic.

Below are some of the young women's organization.

Some of the hard working women of the branch sweep and rake the village square.

Here we prune some shrubs near the village square.

This is a group shot that includes most of the helping hands.

Here some of the workers enjoy their favorite refreshment: a loaf of bread and a sodaa pop.

Another example of how the church is the same all over the world (kinda). The youth service projects but I am not sure how the youth in America would do with the straw brooms.

Yeah, Devynne say she agrees with Robyn. "Straw brooms I don't think so." It's so good to see you back on your blog, since I don't do Facebook. Thanks.
