This is why I love doing what I do…I get to watch amazing students do amazing things. Jackie Markovich is an intern in the College Ministry at The Austin Stone, and The Austin American Statesman printed an article about her project in Sudan for the Clinton Global Initiative. Here’s an excerpt:
In Nagishot, Sudan, women work in the fields and in their homes.
And with the help of Jackie Markovich, a 21-year-old University of Texas junior studying political communication, they will start their own businesses — making a local pastry and chai to sell on the roadside, as well as soap and cooking oil from sunflowers.
The poor, Markovich said, “just need someone to basically give them a hand.”
Great work Jackie!
