This is the first newsletter in 2015. A newsletter with the progress of our projects and a new volunteer experience. In the end of 2014 the FrankEve Foundation has received a donation from volunteer Paula Winter from Germany. She sold many Ghanaian bags made by our fashion students to her German relatives and friends. With the use of this donation, we have bought many bags of cement.
buy all of the needed materials, but we have come a long way!
Suzanne also sold FrankEve’s Ghanaian bags, wallets and other products to her friends. In December FrankEve received the donation Suzanne raised by selling the products to her Dutch friends and family since her return to Holland in August. With this donation we were also able to start 2015 with the first part of the roofing of the restaurant. And this is how far we are:
Our newest volunteer is Paula Nowak from Germany. She is at the FrankEve School since September 2014 and teaches Mathematics, English and Food & Beverages and is here to volunteer for a year. She really enjoys her work, because the students at FrankEve are very polite, funny and smart. They are always interested and eager to learn. The amazing thing is that she learns a lot from them too, she says. Last Christmas the school organized a lovely party in the evening at the school and everyone sang and danced. She really enjoyed it. The girls gave gifts to each other and to the teachers as well. She’s proud of the girls and feels happy whenever she sees that they appreciate her work. When she returned from the holidays her students told her that they have missed her. Positive news to start the year, right?
