A great start to 2013!

He has a job thanks to you!
He has a job thanks to you!

The 2013 school year is off to a fantastic start and EIM now has more than 160 students. We’re delighted to welcome this year’s newest teacher, Richardson, and this year’s trainee teacher, Jean Pierre Enock (or “Nocky” for short!).

Thanks to your generosity, 160 students are learning the skills they’ll need to find work. Merci Canine is joining the school this year and will be a part of Wilkens’ beginner class. She was crystal clear on how she thought English would change her life. “English can help me … find a job to take care myself and my family.”

Merci has started 2013 with hope for a brighter tomorrow because you chose to give. We can’t tell you how much we appreciate you, and how excited we are for the year ahead. If you ever have any questions about how your donation is changing lives please don’t hesitate to email

Finally, in the words of another new student Murat Dayana “I want to thank you everyone for that precious gift you give us. Thank you again!”

Succeeding thanks to you!
