Flory and Amina

This is Flory Zozo and his wife Amina. I wanted to be sure to share this picture with you because Flory is the force behind the training.

I contacted Flory about a year ago because I wanted to do something to help in Central Africa. My thought was that I would get trained and go there in about ten years. Flory told me I couldn’t wait, so the idea of the training was born.

Through the next few weeks and months Flory worked hard to find volunteers for the training, ensure the women we trained would be accepted by the countries they serve in and to designate a location for the training.

What Flory and his community have accomplished is amazing. Check out their website at to see all the projects Flory and Amina are involved in.
