This year has flown by and as we close the last chapters of 2009, I just wanted to thank you for all your support and bring you up to date with our helping hand programme.

2009 saw us adopting a shea co-op in Gumu - Northern Ghana. We set a target to raise enough funds for this co-op on 8th October and managed to hit the target (100.2%) by 8th December. Thanks to your support and a very kind donation, the total amount raised so far is 120.7% of our target.

These are some photos showing progress:


We hope to purchase their first shea production early next year.

Vele is a young disabled boy from Swaziland who we support through education and recently received these photos including his school report. We are very proud of him.

After waiting for what seemed eternal, I finally signed documents for the formation of our Ghanaian based company [NGO/Charity]. This will be to help meet the psychosocial needs of disadvantaged and vulnerable children.
As we say in Ghana, mi daasi paa. Thank you very very much.
