Jana Capps is one of our most dedicated long-term volunteers. Since 2008 Jana has provided effective management and support for a variety of humanitarian projects and fundraising events for Africa Heartwood Project. We are grateful for her passion for lifting the poor, her compassion in service, and her dedication to her convictions that further this work. She is currently living at the Heartwood Orphan Home in Liberia where she is managing infrastructure development at the Heartwood Homestead, providing leadership in community development in the Sand Beach Community, and developing a curriculum for education and child development for the future Homestead campus. Her volunteership is anticipated from July 1st to December 15th, 2013.

In 2008, Jana helped to establish the Refugee Orphan Home at Buduburam Refugee Camp in Ghana, which provided full time care for up to 50 Liberian war orphans from 2008 to 2013. She also was instrumental in assessing the needs of and raising funds for two communities who became our first Village Water Project beneficiaries. Jana also advocated for Chanshegu to get a bore hole assessment and drilling attempt in 2009. In 2009 she managed the World Music Benefit Concert II to raise funds for the Orphan Home. Since then she has continued to provide her time and networking to support our projects any way she could.
