Years 2012-2013

During 2012-2013, the carpenter built several single and double bookcases, six tables with ten chairs each for the students, and two desks for the staff.  We spent two and a half months sorting the over 7,000 books that were shipped from the US and had been kept in storage. 

A sign painter designed three large metal signs for the two buildings and painted signs above the doorways.

The grand opening of the Dompoase Kindergarten Complex was held in February 2013.  A couple hundred people from the village, municipal offices, teachers, and others attended the official opening.

"It is my wish that the voice of the storyteller will never die in Africa, that all children in the world may experience the wonder of books, and that they will never lose the capacity to enlarge their earthly dwelling place with the magic of stories." - Nelson Mandela
