Called to Serve: Jake Moore '12 and Martine Tchitchihe
12:00PM - 1:00PM
Please join us for a special presentation by 2 individuals who are called and dedicated to a life of service, focusing their efforts through different organizations in Africa.
Jake Moore '12 has been serving in the Peace Corps in Cameroon, Africa since graduating from Wabash. Everyday Jake lives out the values instilled through the College's mission statement and the Gentleman's Rule to live humanely and lead effectively. In Cameroon, Jake works communities to teach agro-forestry techniques and improve nutrition and food security.
Through the Peace Corps, Jake became acquainted with Martine Tchitchihe. Martine grew up in Cameroon and has very recently "escaped" to the United States. As an advocate for women's education, Martine became a target for the terrorist group Boko Haram, the same group responsible for the kidnapping of Nigerian schoolgirls which made news in the US last year, brought to light also by Michelle Obama's Bring Back Our Girls campaign.
