Your Donations at Work: PC Lab up and running

New Computer Lab up and running...
New Computer Lab up and running...

Dear friends of International Academy of Niamey (IAN);

As you already know, PCs are an important part of today’s society. Because of your support IAN now has computers and other elements of technology directly in the classroom. This is benefiting the students in a myriad of different ways. We've asked the students their opinions about their experience so far. Enjoy reading their thoughts below:

  • Computers in the classroom allow us to learn the basic mechanics of computers, such as the keyboard, basic software and hardware...now we believe we can use computers in many other situations.
  • Through the internet, computers teach us to utilize online research for homework, schoolwork, and other projects.
  • Through the internet,computers make it possible for us to find answers to questions both inside and outside of the classroom.
  • Having computers in the classroom helps us learn typing skills, which can also improve our writing skills. Tools like spell check and grammar check in word processing programs is helping us to improve spelling and grammar skills.

The above are the wonders that your support is making. While the current academic year is two months away from its end, we are still over $30,000 short of our fundraising objective. Your continued support is highly appreciated. Our goal for the 2012-2013 academic year is to enroll 50 students. We cannot meet this goals without your support.

Thank you so much and May God Bless You.

Sharing Their Experience With The Community

The students of International Academic of Niger showcased their computer skills:

As a result of many interests expressed by other young girls and boys about International Academy of Niamey, our current students took the initiative to organize an event on March 17th, 2012 to speak directly to potential students and their parents. Armed with their newly acquired computer skills, they delivered an impressive presentation to an audience of about fifty.

The session lasted two hour and according to the school principal, Mr. Zakari Baraou, the following are various benefits at different levels:

  • Benefit for the school: International Academy of Niamey will be known to parents who have children in sixth grade that desire to attend the school during the 2012-2013 academic year.
  • Benefit for students: to learn to dialogue and to improve their speech and communication skills.
  • Benefit for parents: got to know International Academy of Niamey better and be able to see and make own assessment on what the school offers.

Again, we can't thank you enough for your continuous support. Because of you kindness and generosity, we now have a computer lab with a total of eight laptops. As we are gearing up to meet our 2012-2013 academic year goal of fifty students, your support is needed more than ever. Thank you and May God bless you.

Field Trip for Academic Enrichment

Students taking notes...
Students taking notes...

Dear friends and supporters;

Because of your generosity, we were able to offer to our students an academic experience that only the very elite and most expensive schools offer in Niger Republic: a field trip for academic enrichment.

On February 09, 2012, Staff members and teachers of International Academic of Niamey (IAN) organized a first field trip taking IAN students to the Niger Republic's largest rice mill, Société Riz du Niger (Rice Company of Niger), located 20 miles from the IAN site. The purpose of the trip was to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities.

At the site, the Director of Rice Company of Niger and his agents guided students through the process and different stages involved on transforming rice from initial stage into a finished product. Teachers and staff members were very pleased with the type of constructive and pertinent questions that the students asked to the Director and his agents. 

We would like to take the opportunity to thank you again for your support. We are also inviting you to continue your support in order to meet the school's 2011-2012 annual operating cost of $40,000.00.

Sincerely,

Dodé Ackey
