Visiting with the school children...
Visiting with the school children...

In April - May, this year, I had the opportunity to visit some of the partner schools in Sierra Leone. While there, I presented 3 new XO laptops to the Eva Houston School. I was very warmly received at each school. I had a brief meeting with the school Principals / Head Teachers and was given a tour of each school. The children, teachers and Principals expressed their deep gratitude for the assistance that you have helped provide. They asked me to convey their appreciation to you – our donors - for the materials received and scholarships provided. As they explained some of these materials are hard to come by and unavailable locally. By providing these supplies free to the schools and students, we are together promoting and supporting education. Through the scholarships and this supportive environment, the children are able to continue their education and their learning is enhanced. Thanks donors for your on-going support! We all realize the value of a quality education – and even much more so in these days. This means a lot more than you will ever realize. This is helping to greatly increase their opportunities for success and independence.

Additional details about, pictures and a full report on my field trip are available from the link below. We would appreciate your feedback and hearing from you. Please feel free to contact us at any time.

Your continued support is also appreciated. Please consider making an additional donation today or signing up for a recurring donation. This would help us impact many more lives. Thank you.
