STORIES THAT INSPIRE
ImpactAVillage offers speaking engagements at schools, corporations, clubs, and places of worship. Our inspirational speaker Deng Jongkuch shares his harrowing story of survival as one of the Lost Boys of Sudan and his experience as a refugee in the U.S. His story offers hope, creates awareness about different cultures, and inspires activism, volunteerism and giving back to those in need.
NEWS UPDATE: IMPACTING OUR CALIFORNIA VILLAGE
October 13, 2017: The board members of ImpactAVillage voted to help our local “village” of Northern California devastated by the fires. We donated $2500 to the Redwood Empire Food Bank who is providing critical food to shelters for our neighbors displaced by fires. This is the way to impact a village!
Another New School for the Amazon!
The Shawi community located deep in the Amazon region of Peru has successfully completed the Nuevo Ponderosa School. This project was completed with funds from ImpactAVillage, the support of Eda Zavala who is ImpactAVillage’s cultural ambassador in Peru, and the dedicated efforts of the Shawi community. Based on the success of this project, ImpactAVillage is funding the building of another school Nuevo Pijuayal.
“Thanks to ImpactAVillage the dreams of my beloved Shawi children are kept alive”, Eda Zavala
