Projects of Hope

Immediately upon returning from their trip to St. Peter’s in October 2010, Chernoh and Jennifer personally shipped two new computers,  three new sewing machines, and chalk board paint to the school. The shipment was received in December 2010. The computers will be used to teach the students typing skills,word processing, and internet navigation.  The sewing machines replaced used machines. The students will learn techniques and use the machines to take practical exams.

Barrels of Hope International, Inc. shipped their first official barrel in March 2011! The barrel included various clothing, shoes, purses, and toys.  It was opened at the school in late May 2011 to celebrate the end of the school year.   Mrs. Wurie, founder and principal of St. Peter’s, expressed her appreciation in the email below:

“Dear Chernoh & Jennifer,

The barrel was opened by them and we took every items out the whole school received including the teachers and myself.
