Meet Kate "back on wheels"

In less than a week I’ll be on the plane again, back to the country that changed my life a year ago. By doing voluntary work in Ghana, I got to know the Meet Kate Foundation. By now, there is nothing I’d rather do than work for this wonderful cause and so I can’t wait to see the children, Kelly and our employees again! I won’t leave The Netherlands empty handed, I’ll be bringing lots of wooden jigsaws, abacuses, costumes and letter boxes. All school supplies donated by you to further improve the quality of the care and education in our daycare center. On behalf of our project manager ‘Education and Development’ Noor van Hout and all the children: thank you very much for your wonderful responses and great donations! For our next newsletter I’ll give you an update from Ghana!

Meet Kate is 'back on wheels'! 

Last year, both our school bus and our pick-up broke down. The first due to a broken engine and the second because of an accident. This month, we got our wheels back!
Meet Kate was able to buy a new bus to take the children to and from school every day. We can also use it to pick up the teachers and children of the daycare center. The children were very happy when they first saw the beautiful bus. They were dancing, singing and drumming in celebration! To them, this bus also means they can be taken on new trips to the beach or the castle.
The Meet Kate Foundation was able to make a great deal and get a new pick-up as well. Now we can take our own truck to go to the cacao plant or pick up the food for the chickens. The car can also be used for appointments, emergencies and for picking up visitors. 

Board meeting 

Brainstorming about new plans, discussing our collaborations and thinking of new ways to raise funds to finish building the school... The board members of the Meet Kate Foundation are ready to go! On Saturday the 9th of June we held a productive meeting on the status quo of the Meet Kate Foundation. Even secretary Nienke (who currently lives in Ghana) was able to make it!
