Happy 2021! Let me start this brief report by thanking the great team at GlobalGiving and all our donors and friends who supported us through GlobalGiving throughout 2020.
Yes, 2020 was by far the toughest year we have ever faced. In addition to the pandemic and other challenges we grappled with, like unprecedented school closures, economic hardships, and organizational turmoil due to covid-19, we are still here!!
Read the below bullet points to know what happened.
Covid-19 Lockdown started in March 15, 2020 Offices/ Schools were closed nation-wide
The Village of Peace project came to a grinding halt due to no funding
We mobilized some little funding to produce simple cooking videos using basic techniques.
Due to Covid-19 Government guidelines, we had to restructure our existing school to accommodate the long-distancing policies. Adding more hand wash stations, more toilet facilities, more chairs, equipping the classrooms with gadgets for easy learning etc. These weighed down on already shoe–string budget we have been operating with for a while now.
Lockdown lifted. School reopened in November 2020, but with covid-19 stringent measures.
Due to Covid-19 government policy limiting indoor gathering, we optimized Esther’s Aid Pastry Shop by introducing take-out menu.
Finally, 2021 is here. We plan to commence the Village of Peace campus project this first quarter, upon availability of funds. With our GlobalGiving donors’ sustained support, we believe every single component and phases in this major project will be completed.
Please if you've not yet given and still want to, there's always the chance to invest in 2021 to Esther’s Aid Village of Peace Campus. Visit www.esthersaid.org to donate. Thanks and God bless!
