The End of Winter

The cold winter is ending in Namibia.  Yes, because Namibia is in the southern hemisphere, Namibian citizens experience winter in July and August.  There is no heat in the buildings at Children of Zion Village, making sweatshirts are a favorite clothing article this time of year!  But now the temperatures are warming up and before long the heat will be in the range usually associated with Africa. 
 
Schools are currently on a break, and many of the children have the opportunity to spend time in local villages.  This enables the children to stay connected with their cultural history, learn about and experience village life, make friends from outside our COZV family, and visit with extended family who live in the villages.  Village visits tend to be a special time for everyone.
