Accomplishments - 2013
 
During 2013, we spent two and a half months in Ghana, in order to finish the library and prepare for the grand opening.  Over 7,000 books had been shipped from the U.S.A. and were in storage.  We spent weeks unpacking and sorting over 7,000 books.  We employed a carpenter to build several single and double bookcases, six tables with ten chairs each for the student, and two desks and chairs for the librarians.
