Dear Friends,

The month of December was very exciting for children at the Bitame Lucia School who shared their holiday together for meals. We had a total of four volunteers from UK, Estonia, Germany and Sweden. They all introduced to us different skills from their different countries. We receive letters from pen pal friends from United Kingdom and also some Christmas gifts from our linking schools in Kenya and United Kingdom.

This party helped to motivate and encourage the students to do even better.  Rainer, who was our Santa Claus, gave us a lot of sweets and chocolate. We all had a tremendous time together with the school administration and some parents who joined us for the Christmas party. We were also privileged to welcome Mignon Turner and Mrs. Viban Gladys both from the US Embassy in Cameroon at our Christmas party. 

January 2012 - The new semester is off to a great start and it's great to see the children all back in school.  They are making steady progress with their studies.  The children are all so eager to learn. Thanks to your support, we are providing this opportunity for them in their community.  We are truly helping to shape not their destinies, but also that of the nation of Cameroon and this is truly significant.

Thanks for your on-going support in helping to make change happen.  We wish you the very best for 2012
