Update On Our Pre-School

Dear Friends,

It was a very merry Christmas for the children who attend our pre-school. They jumped up and down with joy when their teacher in the picture below wearing  a black skirt and a  white blouse informed them that we had toys for them.

The Pre-School program is doing very well. We have one full time teacher. Last year we had 30 children enrolled in our school. We pay the teacher $100.00 (US) per month. Last year we sent the teacher to two refresher courses. 

The following are our  goals for 2013

  • Increase the number of children enrolled in our school to 90 
  • We need to hire 2 more teachers. 
  • We need a building which will be able to accommodate 90 kids.
  • We need tables and chairs, currently the kids sit on the floor. 
  • We need to add an outdoor play area with swings 
  • We need toys

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to  the friends of the foundation for making this possible.  May your hearts be filled with joy as you reflect on the difference you made in the lives of these children.  May God bless you and your families.

Best wishes,
