My First Visit to The Academy...

Intro to PC Exam in session

Dear Friends,

It is with pleasure that I am writing to you about my first visit to International Academy of Niamey, which took place during the week of December 18 - 22.

My visit confirmed to me that we are investing in the right cause. The various testimonies from students, parents, and teachers only gave me the drive to get going. There are, of course, many challenges that we are facing right now. Amongst these are the location, meeting our monthly expenses, and providing more resources to our students and teachers. In spite of the challenges, the students are learning a lot and they are very happy with what they are getting from the International Academy of Niamey. The parents I spoke with are also very pleased with what their kids are getting.

Finally, I like to share with you this not so good news. For the first time since opening the school in June 2011, we are have difficulties meeting our monthly expenses, including teachers salaries. Your continuous support at this moment of our existence is very crucial and I invite you to help us in any way possible. Thank you so much for your never ending support. May the blessings of The Lord be upon you.
