What a journey it has been since we officially started building our ambitious 4 unit classroom STEM block that will transform the educational experience in Ayenya D/A Basic school. Your generosity has overwhelmed us and aided us to complete the foundation of the building.

This project will bring a difference in the educational outcome of girls and boys a farming community that is used to falling walls, and potholes in the floors of the classroom making learning and teaching unattractive and sometimes even a death trap. As the dry season has now set in the children thankfully have one less issue to deal which is the rains which disrupt almost 20% of their learning periods in a year. So it is key for us to continue to work hard to complete the project before the rains start in June/July just four months away. We are hopeful that together with your support we will finish before the first rains.

With 5000 clay bricks available on site now our work will resume in the first week of February as we raise. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank everyone who has supported this project so far and we look forward to officially opening the first STEM Impact Classroom in the coming months.

It's been 3months since we partnered with GlobalGiving to build the first Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) classroom in rural Ghana. I am excited to share with you our donor partner the progress we have made so far.

The labour for the project has been reduced through weekly community service with members of the village. The enthusiasm of both the old and young during community labour days have been very heartwarming, as the project has brought about a spirit of hope in the village. The foundation block work is now completed with the concrete work yet to done.

As we continue to build the physical structure, plans for the sourcing of STEAM equipment and training programs is looking very promising and we can't wait to share exciting news with you in our next report in December.

We want to once again thank you for your continuous support to bring quality education to our promising young achievers and leaders in the village of Ayenya.

As we start this amazing journey of being part of the GlobalGiving family through the Accelerator program I would like to update our donars and prospective partners of where we are at the moment with our project. On March 3rd 2020 we hit the ground to commence our building project which is the first of its kind in Ghana and maybe across Africa. Through the kind support of fundraisers and donors during our Christmas fundraising drive we raised enough to purchase initial building materials which included sand, stones, cement bags, and clay bricks. Through community labor from both the old and young we are almost done with the foundation of our first phase of the building.

Thank you for your support and we appreciate you investment in providing quality and fun education for the children and youth in Ayenya D/A Basic School.
