Giving help to the world

-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

When it comes to humanitarian work, there is never a lapse on things to do. Jean and John Lyman know this first hand; whether it is helping out rice farmers in Cambodia or volunteering at the Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints church in England, the Lymans have traveled the globe to offer their services.

Recently, the Lymans returned from a three-month service project in South Africa. They worked in the Africa Area Offices of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Johannesburg providing assistance in the administration of the Perpetual Education Fund.  In 2001, the Church established the Perpetual Education Fund to help young men and women living in areas under very difficult circumstances get a good education and become self-reliant.

While in South Africa they also participated in some humanitarian work of the Church and evaluated the effectiveness of specific humanitarian projects in Cape Town.  Immediately upon their return to the U.S., Jean was invited to participate in a conference at Brigham Young University on economic self-reliance, humanitarian work and sustainability. She has also been invited to participate in developing programs for possible use in future humanitarian projects.
