I'm afraid of the big bad BLOG!!!

This is my first attempt at setting up a blog and I am a little scared. But many people are asking what we do here in Africa with our non-profit organization, so I thought maybe I would start writing it down for people to see. The name of our organization is KOVA. The word "KOVA" came up in Google translate as a word in Azerbaijani for "water bearer". We liked the way it sounded, so KOVA was born. Then we expanded KOVA to make it a beautiful acronym, "Keeping Our Villages Alive" That made us all believe that we were really onto something great.

The purpose of this blog will be for me to share some interesting information and stories about everything "KOVA" At least I hope I will keep it interesting. I will do my best to include videos and photos, so that you all don't get bored to quickly, haha.

I hope you enjoy learning about my life here in Africa.
