The school year has officially started. Our activities here at Imani house resumed on September 8th.
Since then we've had an Election Day Camp day November 4th and and our Fun Fest Camp on November 11th all thanks to your support. They are able to enjoy facepainting, soccer, Fall exploration, a bouncy castle and more. Our After School Program is running smoothly. We were able to keep Archery for the fall which helps us introduce our kids to activities they usually would not be exposed to. We also had a can drive to collect food for the needy to teach our kids to give back to the communitee.
We're looking forward to more exciting Fall fun. We will keep you updated with all the activities at Imani House. Again we greatly appreciate your generosity and we hope that you will share our work with your family and friends.
It’s officially the end of Summer and Camp Imani has become the Imani House After School Program for the 2014-2015 school year.
Thanks to the support of everyone through Global Giving, Camp Imani were able to experience the joy of arts of crafts, the exhuberance of an Indoor Beach Party and overall, were able make great memories during this year’s summer camp.
We’re looking forward to an even more exciting Fall program beginning in September and we will keep you up to date with all of the activities and fun that Imani House continues to provide. Thank you again for all of your support to provide our kids with these opportunities and we hope that you will share our work with your family and friends.
We hope this report finds you well! It's been a great school year filled with learning and fun for our kids. They've been exploring our creativity through our art projects, dance classes, and of course our drums!
As the school year comes to a close, the kids are getting excited about joining Camp Imani for the summer! Thanks to your support, we have been able to plan great activities and trips for over 120 kids.
We are very close to achieving our overall goal of raising $10,000 to support Camp Imani. Your continued support allows us to maintain events like our talent show and fund wonderful camp activities. Imani House looks forward to bringing our kids into summer with educational projects, explorative adventures and lots of support!
We can't wait to update you about camp progess in our next report. Thank you all for your continued kindness and support!
It's been a long winter here in NYC, but with warmer temperatures on the horizon, our thoughts are not only on Spring but also on Summer! We know our students are eager to get out of school and get into Camp Imani, but they certainly are enjoying our After School program.
Your donations recently allowed us to acquire new African drums & Steel Pans for our students to use. As you can see from the pictures, the students certainly had fun experimenting with them!
As the school year winds down, Imani House will continue to provide engaging activities, educational support, and lots of fun through our summer camp. Your donation makes this year-round support of our children possible. We truly couldn't do this without any of you!
We look forward to sharing news of our summer camp and warmer weather with you in our next report!
Thank you for your continued support,
Happy New Year Everyone!
We hope that 2014 is off to a great start for you all. We just wanted to share some recent highlights within the Imani House After School Program.
Last month, Imani House’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Club - which introduces our students to a variety of investigative sciences & hands on experiments, welcomed Dr. Folami Ideraabdullah, a genetic scientist from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
Dr. Ideraabdullah answered questions from the students about her daily activities as a scientist and also provided an exciting excersisefor the children to participate in. With a few simple items, Dr. Ideraabdullah lead the students through the different steps of scientific method with an experiment that extracted DNA from peas.
The students were awed by the experiment’s success and Imani House is grateful to have exposed the children to activity like this.
We look forward to sharing more of our successes with you soon!
