An Invitation to Luncheon with Jane Ndulo - TODAY in the Greene Room
Greene Room

I would like to invite you to join me Tuesday January 3rd at noon for a
simple soup and bread lunch in the Greene Room for an informal
conversation with a friend I met in Zambia this summer, Ms. Jane Ndulo.
I traveled this past August with the NGO "Communities without
Borders" to deepen my knowledge of the AIDS crisis and how churches
might reach out to assist AIDS orphans, other vulnerable children and
the remarkable women who carry the burden for caring for them. Ms.
Ndulo traveled with our group much of the two weeks we were there and is
working in Zambia to further the work of Communities without Borders.

Ms. Ndulo's brief visit to the Boston area is a special opportunity
to learn more about how the Communities Without Borders program works
someone who lives in Zambia and deals with children orphaned by AIDS on
a daily basis. Jane may also be able to answer many other kinds of
you may have about life in Zambia, especially about health and
healthcare,and how we can best contribute to sustainable development in

Ms. Ndulo has lived an interesting and inspiring life; she was raised
in rural Zambia and educated at a time when girls were rarely sent to
eventually becoming a Lecturer of Community Health Nursing at the
University of Zambia. Ms. Ndulo has studied at Boston University, and
also worked with
Mother Teresa in Calcutta. In her retirement, she manages a small-scale
diversified farm and volunteers as the lead contact in Zambia for
Communities Without Borders (CWB). CWB provides educational and support
services to orphaned and vulnerable children of Zambia.
