HGTV Employee Crusader
Sonya Sampson, Office Manager, Los Angeles

In August 2009, Sonja and 11 family members, including her 85-year-old parents, formed Heal Our Land Service Network Team (HOLSN), a non-profit organization, and accepted a challenge by Maranatha Volunteers International to build a school in Chimoio, Mozambique, a country torn by war and cripped by illiteracy. The participants of HOLSN raised $25,840 for the building of the new structure and donated labor.

"Our goal is to provide suitable facilities for children and adults, especially females to learn and become self-sufficient," Sonya says. "We want to establish good will, positive working relationships and friendships between African-Americans and our African brothers and sisters."
