It looks familiar, right? This is the Cherifoula Private School and its best. The management used the extended winter break to rebuild and renovate the building. An excellent job!
As it is the carnival season now, our wonderful and artistic supporters of the Savannah Belly Dance events created some extra special outfits and brought the feeling of the season to our homes again. Thank you for your ongoing support for the children with disabilities in Bamako!
After a long 10 months break the children are back to school in Ghana! And thanks to generous supporters and volunteers, classrooms on the first floor can be used now.
With our "Let's plant trees" project you can choose to reduce your carbon footprint. Invendor Advisory Services Ltd just did that by donating for planting 36 trees. Let's see those orange and lemon trees grow in Mali.
There has been no teaching in Ghana for 9 months. We can only hope that the day will now really come when the kids can return to the classrooms in January. As in the meanwhile the classrooms of the first floor are completed, now the railing of the stairs and the corridors must be done. The railing project started on Christmas Eve, with a special sparkler.
The school in Bamako will be rebuilt during the winter break. Right now, we don’t see how he’s getting ready for the start of the school on the 11th January, but the management says it will be ready. We talked about painting the rooms and painting the facade, they asked for ideas about the world of colours, painting and decoration options. We are looking forward to the result.
