School in Ghana

Thank you for all of your well wishes and monetary support in 2018. With your help we were able to cover the medical expenses for Desmond, who sadly succumbed to his illness in June. We were also able to pay for the transport of his remains and for his funeral expenses. His father would not have been able to provide for any of these expenses on his own.
In Desmond’s name, we continued our work building an addition for the elementary school in Amehi in Eastern Region of Ghana. Previously, the early childhood and kindergarten classroom was a thatched hut that allowed for teaching only when weather permitted. With the blessing of the school’s headmaster and with the encouragement of Rita, the kindergarten teacher, we broke ground in December. Felix, our good friend and liaison has been instrumental in managing our project and we would like to thank him for his help. We are in need of approximately $5000 to finish the building in the next few months. These young children have different living conditions and daily challenges but in the end, they are just like our children. They are curious, fun, and full of life. Please help us achieve our goal to make one thing in their life a little easier by giving them good learning conditions.
Thank you,

Celina and Steve
