NORWAY — The Christ Episcopal Church in Norway and Andy Churchill, a senior at Hebron Academy, invite the public to a presentation and discussion of Churchill’s work last summer at Little Field Home, an orphanage in Malawi, a poor nation in sub-Saharan Africa.

The presentation will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20, at the church, 35 Paris St.

Inspired by his teacher Janet Littlefield, the founder of the orphanage, Churchill was fulfilling a dream to volunteer in Little Field Home’s school, its health clinic and with the local chiefs and elders to find new ways to increase commerce and reduce Little Field Home’s dependence on outside support from its western parent organization, Friends of Little Field Home.

Like all the students who volunteer, Churchill lived at the orphanage without running water or electricity and became part of the community. He learned the Malawian culture and received daily language lessons in Chichewa as well.

At the presentation, both Churchill and Janet Littlefield will speak about their experiences and the work of the orphanage.

“I never knew about real poverty until I went there,” Churchill said.

Friends of Little Field Home is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting orphans and vulnerable children in the rural area of Malawi, which has one million orphans and a high rate of HIV/AIDS. Those attending the presentation will have a chance to make free will donations which will be used to support the work of the growing enterprise. For more information, visit www.littlefieldhome.org.
