The new school year opened on October 1st.

There are a total of 311 children in our 6 nursery schools (170 girls and 141 boys). It is very positive that there are so many girls in our schools. 

Among the persons in charge of the schools we have 4 girls and 2 men. It seems that there is direct corralation between the number of pupils and the gender of the person in charge: more pupils with women.

Mr. Kam from the ministry of education is visiting the schools every 6 weeks. He will try to undertand if this corralation is true.

In the nursery school of Nefrelaye there are 70 pupils an enormous increase from 2 years ago when there was only 40 children. This can be directly link to the person in charge. 

Some toys came with a container which were distributed among the schools. We also gave some second hand cloths which the mother association will sell in the village to have some funding for the school.

GlobalGiving is having a "donor drive" betwen the14 and 18 December 2020. For recurring donation of 4 times minimum, GlobalGiving will double the first donation up to a maximum of 200 us$.

Thanks for all you have done for this project and we take this opportunity to wish you an happy and healthy 2021.

New development for women beekeeping

Some good news about women beekeeping in our villages. A French institution just approved the funding of 30 new women in the program of beekeeping.

The beekeepers are organised in cooperative in each village. In total there will be 68 men beekeepers and 110 women after this addition.

We have also to mentionned that the project PADEL B should provide an additional 1.000 hives to those cooperative, 600 of them for the women.

The enthousiasm of the women is really motivating us to keep looking for additional funds for the women.

It is only since 3 years that the first women were equipped with hives but they have seen all the advantages of this activity.

- it is not in competition with other activities relative to time

- It is bringing an annual revenue of about 60 us$ without too much work

- they have honey for the family needed by tradition

GlobalGiving is having a "donors drive" between the 14 and 18 of December. For all recurring donations of at least 4 times, GlobalGiving will give a bonus of the first donation up to 200 US$.

Thank you for your support and the women beekeepers joign us to wish you an happy and healty 2021.
