The name “Katonte”, which in Bemba means “being warm together”, is the name of a village in eastern Masaiti District in Copperbelt Province. The Village is close to the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), roughly between the towns of Ndola and Kapiri Mposhi, but it is some 35 Km from the nearest rural clinic. Women and child morbidity and mortality are thought to suffer especially as a result. The Department of Health has constructed a new clinic there, but it is currently inoperable owing to the lack of staff housing. KHP’s initial target is to construct a house, and to contribute to equipping the clinic, so that staff can be posted and it can “open for business”.
Simon and Theresa Foot will join us.

From Robert Freeman, "I was once a well conditioned and idealistic young police officer who wanted to help and protect people and after many years in that profession I came to understand things are not quite what there seemed. Unltimately my police career ended and I am now a retired policeman in a continual fight for my entitlements as a sufferer of PTSD and the clinical depression which accompanies that change in my human function. I am an Australian male born in 1960 in a large rural town in the south eastern area of this country. My father was a sportsman and trucking contractor while mum was a nurse prior to the commencement of the family. I am second of four children and the eldest of three brothers. I joined the police cadets as a 16 year old in 1977. I was a country boy and city life was completely foreign to me. The saving grace was we lived in an old 1930's hotel near the main railway station in Melbourne. I loved the cadet training. I excelled in most all the aspects of this training and while I completed and graduated high school from the cadet academy I was also voted as the Senior Cadet. My first real notable experience came in the latter part of 1977 when after we had returned from a tour of Tasmania. I had a strange experience there I had what I would describe as my 'Jesus' experience. This was about the 20th August 1977. I felt there was a presence in the room (I was alone in my room at the academy this weekend after our trip, and I felt the urge to give my truth to Jesus Christ). I was not a religious person as such and I was not made to attend church as a boy growing up. The story about how my police career came to a halt and what transpired during the period leading to that and the occurrences which followed are intertwined and quite interesting. Suffice it to say my life was in the process of an irreversible transition".

"I was born in rural Virginia. At 8, I moved with my family to the remote Quaker community of Monteverde in the tropical mountains of Costa Rica. If things broke, you fixed them, if you needed something you didn’t have, you created it out of what you did have or did without it. From this up bringing I inherited a delight in the engineering puzzles of inventing and building, and an easy patience with the general processes of making things.
Growing up, my hands were always busy with embroidery, crocheting, weaving, and other fiber arts. I received professional instruction in painting and drawing as well, but only discovered metal work and jewelry when I moved to Seattle, Washington in 1996. Early in my experiments with metal I gravitated to chains. The manual dexterity gained from decades of handwork and needlework served me well, and translated nicely to linking and knitting with wire.
Today I still live in Seattle, now writing articles and teaching classes on chain making, with work showcased in numerous books & magazines."
Do you believe it is impossible for one so-called “ordinary” person to have a major impact on the world stage? If so… think again!
Join us as Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow shares the inspiring story from his book, The Shed That Fed a Million Children. As a young man growing up in rural Scotland, he had no concept about what life held in store for him and his family. One day, while sharing a pint with his brother, he decided he wanted to do something to help the children of war-torn Bosnia. From this first idea a movement was born.
If you care about the children of the world, you won’t want to miss this account of inspiration, love and the power of hope.
From tactics and strategies to studies and tools. This class will cover all aspects of firefighting in rural areas, small towns, and small suburbs.

And if your an urbanite than this show will give you some insight to how things are done in small towns and rural areas.

The Andrew Dixon Foundation is to develop self- esteem and motivate youth through the eyes of baseball. The past 3 years has been developing baseball throughout Jamaica primary schools, certifying and teaching
. Along with the annual back to school and Christmas projects give-a-ways. It has been brought to my attention that one of the rural primary schools St. Elizabeth "St. Mary's primary school" is without proper bathroom facilities. We have agreed to take on this project to build two bathroom facilities for this school, which we are seeking support and donations to help complete this project. The cost of this project is estimated at $20,000.00 US and our portion is $10,000.00 half of the cost. The Jamaican government is willing to assist us with the remaining balance. The families of the students who attends the school will be assisting by contributing labor and other help as well. The bathrooms will consist of 4 commodes for the girls, 3 commodes for the boys with 3 urinals, 2 sinks will be provided in both along with the basic doors. We will provide photos of the existing bathrooms with current conditions students has endured for the past years. We kindly thank you in advance for your assistance and all donation proceeds. All amounts are highly appreciated. Once, again thanks for your support. Sincerely Andrew Dixon Foundation Andrew Dixon

Dr. Izzy is a singer…many fans already know that Dr. Izzy is also BLIND. “I always tell people ‘There are so many ways too see’, she says, “You can feel peoples’ energy, discern their mood, through their voices and through the touch of their hand”. She adds, “I love to go up into the mountains here in Colorado. I can’t see them, but I can smell them! I think I remember what things actually look like, but there’s no way for me to really know at this point. I think I remember what colors look like, but who knows if I’m correct. I know what my minds eye tells me, so that’s what I have to go by”.
Born with full vision in Texas, she began to go blind at age nine. She grew up in Texas and rural New Mexico. “Certain things are imbedded in my memory from when I could see. I remember watching my Grand-Aunt Verna cut fried chicken with a knife and fork, and being appalled that we ate fried chicken with our fingers. My dad stuck up for us, telling her we were from Texas, and that was how we ate fried chicken in Texas”.
Singing is also something they do a lot of in Texas. From an early age her parents encouraged her to sing. “I remember being very young and my father got my sister and me to sing for my Aunts. I memorized a whole song, not a kid’s song, a grown up song. I remember thinking it was neat that I knew all the words”. Singing and memorizing lyrics at an early age would later prove to serve her well. Izzy was born with a beautiful voice, and she began to sing for a living in cover bands at the age of 18.

http://www.hhs.gov/healthcare/rights/A Fight over Health Care is Occurin all over the United States but in Tennesse Heroes are fighting Back. Pamela Weston, Randall Rice and his wife retired therpist Meryl Rice were determined not to let their neighbors go uninsured. Learn how they launched a campaign for ACA.Pamela Weston is a grandmother in East TN who organized a 70 mile walk through her state senate district to reach out to those in the healthcare coverage gap resulting from Tennessee's decision not to expand Medicaid. Her Insure TN Journey for Justice crossed a rural senate district through five counties in an effort to reach out to the district's nearly 15,000 uninsured adults. Meryl Rice is a retired psychotherapist whose last position was as the Director of Crisis Services for a mental health agency which covers five rural counties in West TN. She also has many years experience in the healthcare field working in med-surg hospitals . Her 40 year experience has made her acutely aware of how access to affordable healthcare affects not only individuals and families, but the community at large. After retirement, Meryl and her husband Randall Rice took it upon themselves to promote the Affordable Care Act and initially trained to be navigators/certified application counselors. When there were no "sponsoring agencies" near them willing to take on the responsibility of volunteers, they decided to launch out on their own. However, they hit another roadblock.
