A Fruitful Beginning of the School Year

Warm greetings

We are continually grateful for your on-going support that helps provide a platform of growth for the school - supporting miscellaneous school and administrative expenses, purchase of school materials etc.  Through your support we continue to provide education to these deserving children - who otherwise would not be able to go to this school - conveniently located in the community.

The last three months have been a very busy period in our school, full of excitement and events.  Firstly, we want to announce the completion of the first permanent structure in our school. The classroom was donated by the US Embassy Cameroon. So far, this is the only block building at school. As we struggle to change the plank / wooden building to permanent structures, we count on your support to enable us buy building materials.

We are also happy to inform you that a delegation of 10 persons from Kenya and UK visited our school under the Connecting Classroom project. While at the school, they all taught in different classes and also planted a tree in the school. The school choir sang and dance and also presented the delegates with some gifts.

Early this month, we celebrated two activities at school, the first once being World Teachers day and the second being Global Hand Washing Day. The Health Unit of the US Embassy visited the school to celebrate this day with us. They brought us some soaps and hand towels. The children were able to watch a documentary on the important of hand washing.  At the end of the film, the children asked some questions. They day ended with a group picture.

As you can see, there is so much on-going learning and growth going on at the school and we are delighted that you are a part of making this happen.  Together we are creating a bright future for these children and Cameroon.  Thanks so much for your support.
