Happy New Year!

Nii tee yuu palle (Happy New Year in Dagbani)!!

We hope that 2011 finished well for you. It was a great year for us, as we opened our second school, a kindergarten in Dalun. Our 120 students are enjoying learning pre-reading and basic math skills, as well as developing their creativity and self-confidence through educational games.

We also made changes to our leadership team, including bringing on board Manzah Iddi Habib as our new Managing Director. In addition, we hired a new Project Manager, an Accountant, and two new Teachers. We're proud to have attracted such talented individuals who share our passion for educating young boys and girls in northern Ghana.

We're also greatly looking forward to the rest of 2012, as we seek to build two more schools in northern Ghana. The two schools will be a pre-school and kindergarten in a new village in the region. The first one will be sponsored by Falcon Investment Advisors, a private equity firm in New York, and we are still in the process of asking for contributions for the second.

Thanks for your support over the past year and we can't wait to work with you over this coming year! We hope it's a prosperous one filled with fun challenges for you.
