Primary education for 200 village children - Ghana

Mar 4, 2013

Love, Kate

The sun was out yesterday and I thought that finally spring had come. Today, the clouds have come back with a vengeance and with it the low temperatures. But nothing can quench all this excitement. I absolutely love being president of Meet Kate Foundation UK.
We had our first board meeting and it was a great success. We left with lots of positive energy and bursting with ideas. We have a few things up our sleeve but can’t reveal them yet. Be on the lookout in the next newsletter, or better still on Facebook.
We have been overwhelmed by your support and we love hearing from you, so feel free to send us an email:, especially if you have any ideas about fundraising for us.
Last year, I had a great time visiting Myrthe in Holland, a year after we first met in Ghana. This time my trip to Holland is more for “business” purposes but I can’t think of business that’s more fun. Love, Kate is going to be such an amazing event! It will be so nice to meet all the followers and supporters of Meet Kate and the music is set to be top class.
The preparations are underway, and even in the UK we are inspired by the idea. Watch our version of the “Share the word, Spread the love” video!

Think you can do better? Send your version to Personally, I am most excited about meeting the people behind Meet Kate Netherlands: the team that make the magic happen. Kelly will be visiting from Ghana, so it’s a perfect opportunity to see her again and of course my dear friend Myrthe; but also, the board, ambassadors and volunteers.
After that, I’ll come back to studying, but I have no doubt I will be inspired and have a lot to share with the UK team.
Till next time,
Kind regards
President Meet Kate Foundation UK
Finishing touches

After a successful opening, the school is now almost ready for use. The finishing touches are being made, and it's looking nice! The paths and fence are finished and in three weeks time we'll put up the slides, swings and seesaws. Finally, we'll lay green grass between the paths to give the school a fresh look. 
But, no school without students. Fortunately, many children want to attend our school. Since the opening, so many children have enrolled that we are now full! This is a wonderful start for the new school year and sign that parents in the Ekwamkrom area appreciate and believe in what we’ve been doing so far! 

The paths and fence are finished around the Meet Kate Academy
