A video to warm your heart - jolly good fellows

In most places in the Western world, it’s cold or cooler now. How about a heart-warming moment for a change?

Well, here is an unedited, 8 minute video from Freetown, Sierra Leone that shows a group of very grateful children and teachers. This video was shot late in December 2008 – just before Christmas. You can see in the video the books and teaching supplies that your donations are helping to provide. Clearly the books and supplies received meant a lot to them.

Be sure to listen to the end of the video where you can hear the song in your honor. In this song YOU are proclaimed and acknowledged as “jolly good fellows”.

Thank you for helping to make a difference in their education through your donation.

We welcome your additional donations today and throughout the year – that will help us continue to do so much more.
