She says the transition from living in rural St. Philip to teaching in the rural St. Wen- del community wasn't very dif- ficult. She hopes the transition to teaching in a rural school in Kenya will be as simple. When she arrives in Nairobi, she will be taken to a training center where she will begin in- tensive training to learn Swahili. For the next three months, as she learns the lan- guage, she will be living with a Kenyan family. When her training program ends, she will be assigned to teach math at the high school level. High schools in Kenya aren't open to all students; they are only available to stu- dents who are preparing to at- tend college. As a result, teach- ers throughout Kenya use a national curriculum. "They all use the same text at the same pace. Everything is geared to the national exam, which the blUWait'Iraq:Somalia. And now Haiti.

She anticipates that she will be living in a home without running water and electricity, probably a concrete block structure with a thatched or tin roof. She doesn't expect to have a refrigerator and plans to use a kerosine stove. Along with her teaching du- ties, she will be responsible for developing a "secondary pro- ject" in her community, some- thing based on community need. This might involve devel- oping a library or an adult lit- She believes that she will benefit more than the Kenyans from her work, noting "I will have the opportunity to travel and live with another culture. And I will be learning how to get by without all of the things that we take for granted." She says she is hoping to "try to help a little bit. I'm trying to fill a need they have. I'm not going over there to save the world. I want to make an effort to do what I can, to help the students get to college.  3 Clayton's, Catholic Charities, Campus Ministers cooperate for Coat-A-Kid Volunteers from two college campuses and three Catholic parishes in Evansville will join the 1994 Coat-a-Kid drive, sponsored annually by Clay- ton's Fine Dry Cleaning. The company has been sponsoring the program in Evansville, Boonville and Mount. Vernon since 1986. Since that time, over 52,000 coats have been donated to needy children. Clayton's ac- cepts the coats, cleans them, and makes them available for distribution throughout the area. The primary emphasis for the drive is coats for infants and toddlers. New volunteers this year will be organized through the Catholic Campus Ministry pro- grams at the University of Evansville and the University of Southern Indiana. The parishes- St. Joseph, St. Mary and St. Anthony --join Salvation Army locations as distribution points for the win- ter coats.

James Collins, director of Catholic Charities, and Michael Eppler, director of youth and young adult min- istry, announced that their staffs would work together to coordinate the transportation and distribution of coats to children in need for the coming winter. Involved in the effort from Catholic Charities are two members of the bureau's newly formed Parish and Community Outreach staff, Ziba Graham Jr. and Wayne Bochert. Catholic Campus ministry staff are Chris Hoehn, acting director of Catholic Campus Ministry at the University of Southern Indiana, and Tony Bonta, interim director at the University of Evansville. Hoohn will be recruiting and training young adults from USI to staff the St. Joseph Church location. Bonta will re- cruit and train young adults from U of E to staff the St. Mary Church distribution site. Programs at the two loca- tions staffed by campus min- istry volunteers will include catechesis, liturgy and follow- up, according to Eppler. The St. Anthony Church loca- tion will be staffed by parish vol- unteers under the direction of Helen Fifer, parish secretary. In a joint statement, Collins and Eppler said they were de- lighted "in being able to partic- ipate in such a worthy cause as Coat-a-Kid." They also ex- pressed their appreciation to Father John Davidson and Helen Filer at St. Anthony's Family Life Center; to Father Stephen Lintzenich and Helen Boetcher at St. Mary Church, and to Father Fred Englert and Charles Holtz at St. Joseph Church, for allowing the use of their facilities for coat distribution. Coats for infants to pre- teens may be dropped off at any Clayton's Dry Cleaners lo- cation.
