Oct 16, 2017 -

Worldwide, the leading cause of death for children under five is water and sanitation related diseases. In the communities COTN serves, that number continues to decrease thanks in part to the W.A.S.H. program, which educates families about three crucial areas of health—water, sanitation, and hygiene.

Want to see how it works? Here’s a peek into several of the villages COTN serves in Malawi. These families are embracing new methods and seeing positive results!

Last year, three COTN graduates from Malawi—Promise, Sarah, and Rebecca—traveled across Africa to teach at COTN’s school in Banta, Sierra Leone. Just the fact that they are Malawian women with university degrees makes them exceptional. But it’s their courage and their hearts for service that make them truly remarkable.

Patricia's Story: "COTN Has Shown Me How to Love" Sierra Leone
Oct 2, 2017 -
 
“Before COTN, my day was not too happy,” Patricia says. She lived in the Shebuma Faluwo Chiefdom in Sierra Leone with her aunt, who couldn’t always afford food or school fees for all the children in her care. When Patricia could go to school, she spent the rest of her day in the market to make money to pay for school. If it was a good day, she could eat two meals. This was her life until she was seven years old. 
 
Then, because of your giving and God’s grace, COTN changed her life.
