Germs

Melissa, Emma and Levi enjoyed teaching with their cousins.  They had germ demonstrations, made germ crafts, and performed germ skits.


Coffins



You can get buried in a coffin that's made to represent something that means a lot to you.  The sign on the door of the hearse says, "Last Respect funeral service"

Aglorkpovia


In this village where Emma gave out pencils and exercise books, there are not many kids who go to school. The adults believe that education is not important, so they force their children to work instead.

Pencils






Emma was really happy to be able to distribute pencils and exercise books to students at the schools in Aglorkpovia and Kpodzeadki, as well as the Sogakope reading club and to kids in the neighbourhood.

Thanks to all who donated for pencils!
