‘TIS THE SEASON
It is indeed the season to be joyful, merry, happy, hopeful and giving, and I wish for you and yours the best that this season has to offer. As you go about your business eating, mingling, networking, partying, shopping and celebrating with family and friends, do remember that there are very many people out there who are depressed, heartbroken, lonely, sick and grieving. There are numerous persons out there who are struggling and many more who are literally homeless, and even though we cannot save everyone, I am hoping that each of us can at least try to make the holidays brighter for at least one person.

On behalf of the children and families we will touch and serve while we are in Ghana, West Africa from May 23 to June 11, 2018, I THANK all of our amazing donors for their support to the “100 book bags & 100 flip flops” Drive. We wanted to raise enough funds to purchase 100 book bags and 100 flip flops, but we were blessed to purchase a total of 200 book bags and 150 flip flops including 50 of each purchased by our Executive Director & Founder, Rosie (Yaa Gyasi) Parke. We are almost packed and ready and will be donating 50 book bags and 50 flip flops to others who are giving back in Kenya and Jamaica. While in Ghana, we will also be volunteering at Akoma International Academy for a week — teaching a Girls’ Program and doing daily yoga, fitness and wellness.
