We are currently carrying out the Solar Power project, to be funded and coordinated by Peace Tree Africa in collaboration with Kentaja Orphanage. We intend to complete this project in July 2011.Currently, there is no electricity available for use in the small, poverty-struck village of Bandzuidjong, located in the West province of Cameroon, West Africa. This project will allow for the orphans of Kentaja to spend more of their day studying!!

My sincerest THANKS to all of you who have volunteered your time and provided support to Peace Tree Africa Nonprofit and the Kentaja Orphanage Solar Power project this weekend. There is only one way to eat an elephant- one piece at a time (Desmond Tutu), and a few pieces are out of the way! There is absolutely no way I could do this without you; thank you, thank you, thank you.

Looking at the list I made for myself, I’m happy to say that I passed the certification courses and exam; I am now officially certified to teach French in Texas! I’m also making my dreams come true, and little by little, seeing Peace Tree Africa take new steps, and became a Business owner in the process! Oh, how we learn as we go…after talking to various business advisers and seeking out all the info that I could, my application was turned in and my fees were submitted to the IRS; I received a call not long after that informed me that Nonprofits are not allowed to have a large source of revenue that comes from the selling of merchandise- et voila, Peace Tree Africa Partnership was born!!
