Excitement is in the air!

As many of you know, Jeanette Batiste departs for Malawi on Monday March 3rd to replicate ASAP’s program. That would be enough excitement for most! But on Feb 28 she decided to get married! Her new husband, and close friend for five years, Harvey Mtete, was visiting Jeanette from Malawi when they decided to tie the knot just yesterday.

Jeanette will be responsible for setting up the new ASAP Malawi Program at Chikwawa in the far south of the country. That area is the poorest in the country and has seen the brunt of much of the recent flooding. Harvey heads up wildlife conservation projects for African Parks, which, fortunately, is nearby. We look forward to Jeanette’s regular blogs to keep everyone updated on her progress.

As they wing their way to Blantyre on Monday, all of us at ASAP wish them good luck and a wonderful life together.
