Project Report | Apr 10, 2023
April 2023 Update

By Lin Kabachia | Donor Manager

Hello dear friends! I hope you have been well and that the first quarter of the year has been great. Our academic year began January 10th. As you know, Ghana's educational system has three terms. Our first term ended successfully on March 31st.  We want to express our gratitude first and foremost, for your support and continued belief in the work that we are doing. Thank you!

 

In our first term, we admitted a total of 20 new students! Ten students joined our nursery class and ten joined our kindergarten and primary classes. We now have a total of 80 students, which is more than our total last year. Recently, we received a donation from one of our board members, Gregory, who donated four space shelves for our pantry. With your donations, we began a school garden and this term we harvested vegetables and used what we grew to make nutritional lunches for our students. In Ghana, March is celebrated as Ghana Month, a month-long celebration of the countries’ history and culture. March 6th is Ghana’s Independence Day, hence the month-long celebration.  To celebrate, our teachers taught practical lessons on culture and traditions. 

 

Every term, we include fun and educational extra curricular activities for our students. This term we celebrated the 4th edition of Red Day, a day dedicated to showing love, care, and appreciation. Our students and teachers wore red clothing to school and in our classes, we asked our students to share reasons why they love our school. To celebrate independence day, we organized a march for our students. Our first term of the year ended successfully and we are excited for the remaining two terms. Once again, we want to thank you for faithfully giving. Your giving allows us to meet the goals we have of providing access to high quality, equitable and inclusive education to children in our community. We greatly appreciate each and everyone of you. 

 

Best, 

Paul, Joy, Gregory and the PAAJAF Family
