Jocelyn Macharia receives "distinction" for graduate paper
Oct. 18, 2010
Jocelyn Macharia, whose graduate education in Community Pastoral Care and HIV/AIDs is being partially funded through the royalties received from sales of Gotcha Covered: A Legacy of Service and Protection, has asked that this message be passed along to TNAP supporters.
She has recently been awarded a distinction for her paper, entitled “The plight of orphans in the rural areas in the era of HIV and AIDS.” The paper, following the assigned theme of “exclusion and embrace,” described how different people, community organizations, politicians, and government reject and accept the orphans. She found the research and writing of the paper to be very interesting and she hopes to present it in different forums. She thanks God for giving her the wisdom and revelation she received while writing the paper.
Her graduate program at St. Paul’s University, Limuru, Kenya, is to officially end in 2012 after she completes her major thesis. Graduation is usually in October. She will begin working on her thesis preparation in May, 2011, when scheduled classes will end. From then on she will be directed in thesis preparation by her supervisor.
She asks for Almighty God to bless TNAP members with long life full of good health.
