Briefing on yesterday’s awesome activities at the Kaakudi Academy. April 19, 2024

Yesterday, MFP delegation was greeted  at Kaakudi Academy with the beautiful women of the village singing songs of gratitude for what MFP has done for them. Oh my, it was so emotional!

What was so surprising to all of us is these children who only spoke Grebo when the school year began last September are now speaking  english!

The principle, Mr. Boatu conducted an evaluation of the students. So we now have pre K to 4th grade. Because of this and increase in number, we need 2 more classrooms added to the 5 we have.

The women requested a female teacher to supervise the girls. Understandable.

Mr. Boatu requested a canoe to transport the students avoiding absenteeism. Yesterday, several students were unable to attend the festivities because the owner of a canoe that usually helps with transportation said he had to travel.  When it rain which has happened the last few days, the river Ka overflows.

The boys are requesting football and jerseys.

A request was made to have healthcare visits at least every month.

Solo  is already planning that.

The chief and mayor from Cavalla village were present. Kaakudi chief and Cavalla chief both  paid homage to the ancestors in a brief ceremony praising God for the blessing. They expressed gratitude to what MFP has done, giving their children the opportunity to learn.

This journey has been wonderful.

MFP, has been blessed to have Solo Gaye as our rep in this county.  His commitment , dedication and honesty as our eyes and ears in serving our needs is amazing. A true blessing.

Thanks for all the  support from our committed supporters and MFP members. 
May God continue to bless us all.
