“Indeed, my journey to Lubumbashi was indescribable, not only because I met Malaika’s amazing staff, students and the community, but mostly because I could understand and feel the true meaning of altruism. The world had a real sense to me at Kalebuka.
We tend to take everything for granted. Though people in Kalebuka have little, they approach life with smiles and joy. They are lively and have sparks in their eyes.
I was truly struck by the intelligence of the students. To me, Malaika doesn’t only educate girls, but raises the leaders of tomorrow. Noella and her staff are the heart of Malaika. Being with Noella for many hours of many days opened my eyes to her dedication to the school and the community. I am very proud of her for being part of such an amazing organization.”
