Leanne McAlister and Everlyn Chitente at the Free to Lead Conference
ZOE Projects has a really cool network of Canadians (living in both Canada and abroad) as well as amazing national leaders. Every once in awhile we are going to do a post called "Women you should know" to introduce you to amazing people within this network.
Everlyn Chitente from Zambia was a guest recently at the Free to Lead conference in Fort Langley, BC (https://www.facebook.com/freetolead). The conference was designed to "inspire women to leadership". Everlyn did just that by sharing about her calling as a young person to work with vulnerable children. She shared the journey from the initial "call" to becoming an overseer at the Village of Hope in Kitwe. (Check more out here - http://www.vohafrica.com/category/voh-kitwe-2/)
Everlyn encouraged the women at Free to Leadto "not despise days of small beginnings...you never know where you will get to...we are all on a journey and we can trust God in it".
We recorded the interview I did with Everlyn and you can find that here:
Thank you Everlyn for being a strong female leader in the nation of Zambia...you are inspiring!
