Dear Friends and Supporters

Happy New Year 2013!

As you may realize, effective growth, change or development requires a mindset change.  In order to change one’s personal, national or organizational status there must necessarily be a “change in the thinking and processing pattern of the mind.”  This is a key component of change that we are always cognizant of. 

Thanks to your support, we helped sponsor a Christmas event at Door of Hope for about four hundred children within the Upper Mellon Street, Upper Beccle Street and Philip Street community in the Wellington municipality. Funds provided food, drinks and also prizes to winning contestant. 

It was a time when the children were able to learn in a friendly atmosphere. Activities included a quiz competition for primary and Junior Secondary School pupils, a dancing competition and teaching sessions on "How to turn plans to tangible pictures" and "The Power of Education" The activity promoted love, unity and motivated children to be responsible and well informed to make their dreams come true. 

It helped children to see themselves as equals and also to accept and help other children to achieve their dreams.  It further helped give children a sense of direction in life.  The event encouraged parents to pay attention to development of their children.  It also brought hope to the community.

We sincerely thank you for all your support 2012 and we welcome your on-going support in 2013.
