Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction

The Spaghetti Dinner and Auction was a huge success!! We filled the room twice over and raised much needed funds for the ICT we are going to begin working on this month. We exceeded the goal of $2000 and were able to raise close to $3,000.

I have just spoken to my contact in Ada and the crew in Ghana is getting ready to begin making the cinder blocks needed. They are making them all by hand as it will save us a lot of money over buying them already made. We also will not have to pay the workers as we are going to be able to provide them with transportation and a nice evening meal for their help and support.

I believe if the community will help with the school they will take more ownership in it and support it rather than just have us come in and take charge. This is very exciting and I should be receiving pictures to post soon to keep everyone updated on the progress.

Thanks so much for all of your help and support. We will begin another round of fundraising soon so keep in touch!! This is getting exciting…
