The Building Fund
August 25, 2008

The Building Fund, has given me a chance to see a part of the world that I have read about and hear stories about. I traveled with members of The Building Fund to Ghana, this July 2008. The tour was excellety arrange by Jessyca Dudley, and allowed me to see the great work being done by The Building Fund, as far as allowing young students to receive a better educational opportunity. The Building Fund was well received at both schools and the adminstrators expressed, words and actions, how much they appreciated the work of The Building Fund. I will be working with The Building Fund to help in any ways I am able to.

The Building Fund
August 24, 2008

I first heard about The Building Fund (TBF) from Brian Murphy, the former Director of Development, Francis W. Parker School in Chicago. Brian invited me to hear a presentation by Jessyca, the founder of TBF at downtown Chicago in 2007. It was a great privilege and honor to hear Jessyca as she unfolded her dream and passion for the children at Tuskegee School in Accra-Ghana. The pictures shown, and the situation on the ground portrayed positive changes in both academic work and infrastructure as a result of her association with the school. Ever since this meeting I have been in continued communication with Jessyca about the YAIS. TBF made the first-ever donation of to YAIS on June 12, 2008 towards the construction of a library to shelve a large supply of books received from The Kipling Elementary School at the Southside of Chicago and Books For Africa in Saint Pauls, MN. On Sunday, July 12, Jessyca led a delegation of five to visit our school and they were impressed with the warm reception accorded them by the students, teachers, parents, and the community. Plans are underway for TBF and YAIS to partner to provide excellent quality education for the children in our local community.
