Funds are being dispatched this week! 5 more days for Indiegogo Campaign

Hello again everyone!

Wow, what an amazing week we've had with the Indiegogo campaign! When we checked this evening, we have received $2,125 in donations from 31 different people! Not only that, we're told that the campaign has been viewed 397 times so far. Amazing! Thank you to everyone who is donating, and everyone who is helping us spread the word. We're getting closer and closer to our goal of $6,915 - there are still 5 days remaining in the campaign, please continue to help us spread the word!

We also just heard from another school - Our Lady of Providence - that they have completed a fundraiser and are getting ready to send in their donation. This will add to the $2,800 collected so far from the May 11th fundraiser!

We have been in touch with St. Albert Le Grand, and will be sending the school the first 750,000 CFA (about $1,575 CDN) to get this year's project under way. The focus this year will be to continue (and hopefully complete) the rehabilitation of the school buildings on the main school site (some photos of the buildings that are going to be rehabilitated are provided below).

We look forward to providing you updates this summer as the project progresses! We'll also be providing an update for you in July to report out on how the Indiegogo campaign finished.

We hope that you are all having an enjoyable summer!
