Water, water, clean water!
Thanks to the generous donation of Xeless company, the sanitary rooms of the school have been renewed. On 6 November, 2018, a historic moment in the life of the school came: drinking water was running from the tap!
Thus, the "Hand Wash Project" funded by Xeless could already taken place.

Senegal - Art For Life Program
Katalin de Jager and Andrea Gyurácz were in Senegal between the 5th and the 11th of November. With the help of our local contributors, we found appropriate schools for all the children in the Art For Life Program and enrolled them. We visited 6 schools, families, talked with teachers, directors, parents, children. A new cooperation have been established with one of the schools: in one of the schools in Yeumbeul, suburbs of Dakar, we will support the talented, well-performing orphan and half orphan children by paying the school fee, helping them to attend school. The founder of the school himself grew up as a half orphan, this suburban school is a result of his sincere motivation, from which an engineer, a doctor and an English teacher already came out, the English teacher currently teaches at this school. The writing and preparation of the new program is in progress, we wish to announce its launch on 1 December, 2018. The Travels To Africa Tour Operator group took out the personal gifts, but each of our supported budding artists received a personalized gift. We talked to them, they drew, they wrote to their supporters, which we will soon forward together with the photographs. We would like to report about the travel and the experiences at a supporters meeting, we will inform you about the date of this meeting in time. The OzonTV crew monitored our work for one day. We will inform you in advance of the showing of this film. You can read a detailed report on the Senegalese trip that can be found on the website in the blog section.
On the 1st of October the 2018-2019 school year began in École Chérifoula!!

Thanks to the supporters, we managed to buy the schoolbooks for all our small supportees this year as well. There was great rejoicing when the books were distributed. We've received photos of every child, but they've grown and changed so much recently that we've hardly recognized some of them! We hope that the nice new schoolbooks and the reward for the top six place in the class will only increase further their appetite for learning.
The sanitary rooms have been renewed!
Thanks to the generous donation of the Xeless company, the sanitary rooms of the school have been renewed by the start of the school year, thus, the "Handwash Project" funded by Xeless could take place! Not only one more toilet, but hand wash facilities have also been developed at the school. There can be drinking water at the scool in some days. From our foundation, Morris Andrea, head of the project, travels to Bamako in November to attend the ceremony organized for the initiation of the sanitary unit and to hand over the decorations made by a high school in Budapest that teaches correct hand washing.
