Prioject Africa Participant Writes to Carlisle Area Churches for Support

Barbara E. Hancock's Letter to Carlisle Area Churches Following her Trip to West Africa.
Date: 
November 13, 1967

Barbara E. Hancock spent about six weeks during the summer of 1967 in Upper Volta, West Africa (present day Burkina Faso) where she lived with African students and helped to build a school. Upon her return to Carlisle, Hancock became Co-Chairman of Project Africa and wrote a letter to the "clergymen of Carlisle Area Churches" in an effort to "refresh [their] memories about Project Africa" and to offer them a presentation where she would show her slides and give a brief talk about her experiences. Part of the agreement Project Africa participants enter in to requires that upon their return they share their experiences with others in their community. If churches were interested in learning more about the students' trips, they were to contact Rev. Paul Kaylor, the College Chaplain at the time.
