It is hard to believe we are already in summer. The first half of this year has moved quickly. Overseas, We had US donors travel to our schools in Kenya. We enrolled 40 new students in Kenya and Tanzania for the new school year. Here in the USA, We hosted Dennis Lyamuya, one of our TZ BOD members, in 4 cities here in the USA to educate and create awareness. Two school groups in CA raised over $6000 for african children who are really excited about their new desks and a new school roof.
Summer also means graduations, celebrations, relieved youth, and proud parents. This phenomenon is universal. Three of our girls graduated 8th grade into Top level Kenyan high schools because of academics and Four seniors graduated high school qualifying for government scholarships to university. In the communities where we partner, there have been many proud parents and dancing students.
Over the last month, the Asante Africa team has been finalizing our annual report for 2010 and it is a joy to see the impact and results in one document. Some days we are so busy making things happen that we forget to step back and celebrate and to be proud, like a parent would. We hope you enjoy it too.
