Tekeshe Foundation Pre-School Progress

Dear Friends,

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for supporting our Pre-School program. Your donations make it possible for the Tekeshe Foundation to continue to provide a free playtime program which promotes early childhood development and learning through play. 

I am pleased to inform you that the Pre-School program is doing very well. We have one full time teacher and this year we have 30 children enrolled in our school. We managed to send the teacher to two refresher courses.

Our goal for 2013 is to increase the number of children enrolled in our school to 90 and we need to hire 2 more teachers. We also need a building which will be able to accomodate 90 kids. In addition we need to buy desks and chairs, currently the kids have to sit on the floor. 

 As I mentioned in one of the progress reports, promoting early childhood development and learning programs is at the heart of the The Tekeshe Foundation. Unlike the urban areas where children have access to early childhood development and learning programs such programs are nonexistent in the rural areas.  Through are Playtime program we are committed to providing the best start in life to children in these rural areas.

I really appreciate the difference you are making in the lives of these children. The early years in their lives are very crucial. What happens to them during these early years plays an important role in shaping their lives. You are playing a big role in shaping the lives of these children.  Because of your love and support they are receiving the best start in life as a result they are more likely to succeed in school and to end up as productive members of society. 

Thanks again!

Best Regards,
