Thank You For Giving Us This Scholarship

Warm greetings,

The first semester / term of this academic year is over and our sponsored students continue to do well in school.  We had a small group of them make a very brief video (just 9 seconds) which is linked below - Vote of Thanks Video.  The language spoken is Krio, one of the main languages spolen in Sierra Leone and it is subtitled in English.  The children in this video simply say: "We say a big 'thank you' to you for giving us this scholarship".

Also provided below is a group photo taken of some of the beneficiaries.  Photo was taken during a scholarship presentation ceremony.

In 2011 we are planning to expand our reach and impact and invite you to help us do that by making a special year-end / beginning of the year donation.  This would help us do so much more and provide additional scholarshps to the children on our waiting list.  We value you and your support.

Best wishes and Merry Christmas!
