Personal account of trip to Zimbabwe recounted during NIC presentation
North Idaho College Center for Educational Access Director Sharon Daniels Bullock’s trip to Zimbabwe changed her life.
Because of poor health care and a high HIV infection rate, Zimbabwe has the lowest life expectancy in the world; women are expected to live to 34 and men are expected to live to 37.
Daniels Bullock will share her experience living in one of the poorest countries in the world for five months while she taught at Africa University during “My Journey to Zimbabwe: Forever Changed.”
The presentation of personal accounts and photos will be at noon Tuesday, Feb. 27 in the Lake Coeur d’Alene Room of NIC’s Edminster Student Union Building.
Daniels Bullock was touched by the people she met in Zimbabwe and as part of this presentation, is helping to organize Spring Cleaning for Zimbabwe Families during the month of March.
Items being collected for orphans and poor families in Zimbabwe include: clothing for children and adults, pants for both boys and girls, toys, white socks and all sizes of black shoes for school-going children, jerseys, and books, pencils, notepads and other school supplies.
The events are cosponsored by the NIC Popcorn Forum, the NIC Faculty Assembly and the NIC Staff Assembly.
The presentation is free and open to the public.
