It seems that I have not written a newsletter in a very long time. A year as a matter of fact. This has been a tumultuous year for us both here in the US and in Ghana. We have welcomed our new intern Mukurama Abdul Razak to our office. We moved our office to be closer to one of the villages that we support. Sangarigu village is also the location of the shea butter cooperative that we support with our sales of wonderful whipped shea body butter sourced from the best imaginable shea butter in Ghana. We are also welcoming this year, a volunteer from the US Peace Corps who will be helping us to get our latest funding initiative started, Booklets for Basic Education.
We have reached critical mass in our funding of Afafanto Scholars too. I am happy to say that thanks to our generous donors we raised more than 10,000.00 during this fiscal year. Wow! Now we have more girls who are alumni of our organization than the 15 scholarship students currently enrolled in Senior High School. I hope in subsequent newsletters to acquaint you with the stories of these amazing girls. In the meantime, here’s some photos of our most recent scholars selected this summer:
Hope you are enjoying the New Year and we look forward to sharing our many successes in 2019! Sandee
