Hope’s Board catch up on progress at Aunty Rose Tiafoy’s school after a hiatus caused by travel and Covid-related restrictions and there’s much to talk about!
Chairman, Alfred Fornah, Treasurer, Dr Frank N’Yama and Secretary, Aunty Rose meet with Director, Mama Mayila and National coordinator, William Tieh to hear exciting news from Mama Mayila about her visit to a plot of land suitable for a permanent home for Mama Mayila’s Cradle thanks to the offer of a loan on very favourable terms from our longest-time supporter.
Chairman of the Board, Alfred, reports back on the successful launch of innovative climate action tree planting project with eight schools in Sanda in partnership with Society 4 Climate Change Communications and Hope Sakuma. The Board discuss progress at the farm, now with a team of sixteen producing a ton of gari from Hope Sakuma’s cassava farm and enough upland and paddy rice planted to assure our programmes of food next year.
And with plans to add value by processing more crops the Board agree to transition Hope Sakuma from demonstration farm to a for-profit social purpose enterprise. N’Yama proposes a visit to assess the viability of providing a peripatetic doctor and nurse based in our Mananys’ office to visit Sanda villages and improve access to health care.
Lastly, the Board discuss a request from the kids for a change of name because of some stigmatization at school and agree to talk to the Ministry to seek permission. The Board commends the Hope team on their continuing hard-work in challenging circumstances.
