The committee held its meeting via Zoom as coronavirus restrictions meant it was not possible to meet in person. We were very pleased with the way Zoom worked, especially as one of our representatives in Ghana was able to attend!
We decided to use Zoom to conduct our AGM at 2pm (British time) on 25th June this year, and I am contacting all our supporters with that information. We hope to have a really good “attendance”! Since the AGM is open to the general public, if you would like to join it, please contact me via our website and I will send you the link nearer the time.
Among the topics discussed at our meeting were fundraising, the imminent publication of our Newsletter, reports from school in receipt of grants. We noted that the coronavirus pandemic has delayed the transfer of some of the funds already granted, but we understand the transfers will soon take place.
Although we had cancelled the March application window, for technical reasons three outstanding grant applications were discussed at our meeting, and I am pleased to announce approval of grants to Enyankwaa D/A Primary School; Hiakose Abodease RC Basic School; and Chief Nimpadu Ntiamoah Memorial School, Endwa.
The next application window will be 1st to 31st October, with the theme SANITATION, and the first 2021 window will be 1st to 31st March, with the theme CLASSROOM FURNITURE.
