A Pleasent Follow-Up Meeting with the Children

Just before the close of 2012 BFF hosted a meeting inviting all of the children involved in our first cohort of sponsored children. Almost all of the participants in the group came; while all 18 students were invited we were expecting 17 to come to the meeting—one student lives on the other side of the Northwest Region in Kumbo, thus making his trip too long to come. The meeting ended with 12 students present—though the turnout was not 100%, we learned many lessons on how we can more effectively communicate with children/families living in some of the smaller and more rural villages. We most certainly will apply these new means of communication in the future!

The meeting itself went very well. It had three focuses, we wanted to first, refresh the participants of what is expected of them as members of our project, second, see how the students were progressing, and third see if they had any issues or concerned which we may help mitigate.

We are ecstatic to announce that two of the primary school children ranked first in their class; while many others were amidst the top 10! Only one of the students showed quarterly marks that were not outstanding—we took a moment to address this issue with the student and are hopeful he will make the necessary changes in order to improve.

After the meeting the BFF staff discussed ways in which we may continue growing the project and improving on our implementation in order to be find the most effective means to channel your support!

Be sure to read our 2012 Annual Report! Best wishes in 2013!
