Are you ready for the new season?


Dear follower,

A new season is upon us and with that a whole new website. Our regular (web)designers Nico Veenman and Pim Veger have once again managed to wonderfully project our vision to the web, and we can't wait to share it with the world and with you. Keep a close eye on Facebook and Twitter the coming days! Our Scholarship-students await a new schoolyear. The first batch of students will be taking their exams this year: very exciting! You can read all about them in this newsletter. On behalf of the entire Meet Kate staff, I wish you a wonderful beginning of an exciting new season!

Kind regards,

Myrthe Oostenbach
Chairman of Meet Kate Foundation

One of our projects of which we are very proud, is the scholarshipprogram. High school students, who do not possess the financial means to pay for their school fees, get a chance to graduate, thanks to this program. Meet Kate and program-coordinator/mentor Emmanuel, select the youngsters that have the most potential. If you are selected for our program, you receive a 3-year payment of school fees, study books, boarding fees, some pocket money and examination fees from Meet Kate. This year our first group of students are taking their final exams, and we are so very proud of them! We would love to introduce them to you:

Third year students: Theo, Gifty, Ebenezer, Benjamin, Fatima, Richard and Philip
Second year students: Veronica and Romeo 
First year students: Edward and three more open spots!

Would you like to invest in their future? Send us an e-mail or read more about this project!

Richard is taking his final exams this year! Very exciting!

In the beginning of August, our ambassador Peter R. de Vries visited Ghana and the projects of Meet Kate. We were very pleased with his visit. As always, he has given us useful advice. Here's what he said about his stay with Meet Kate: 

''My visit to Meet Kate in Ghana last week was fun and at the same time very useful. It had been over six months since my last visit; I attended the opening of the school. And boy o boy, how much has changed in six months time. The 'decoration' of the complex is pretty much finished and it looks very impressive and beautiful, with the fields of grass, the gravel paths, the sports court and playsets for the young ones. It is a beautiful whole!"
