Thank you.

Thank you for making a difference. Since the opening of our library in July of 2010, we have continued to work hard to make positive changes to improve education at Dekpor Basic School and better the living conditions for the people of Dekpor.

We couldn’t do it without you! We are a small group of highly dedicated volunteers, but we can only do our work because of the ongoing support we receive from generous people like you.

We value your trust. We are grateful for your support. We are committed to making every dollar count.

Thank you for giving.

Thank you for visiting our website, liking our Facebook page, and telling others about the work we do. Together, we are creating hopeful futures.

Dr. G.W. Williams has done many things over the years to support our work!

It all started in 2012 when Carol first visited Ms Stinson's classes and shared a slideshow.
Since then, there have been many students lend a hand to DSDO via volunteer hours and lots of Williams' families contribute to shipments. 
Here are some of the extra things that have taken place:

2012 -- Ms Shillum's grade 11 Fashion course students sew and donate their pillowcase dresses

ecojot is committed to giving back one journal at a time. The "GIVE" program started in 2010 and uses a simple premise: with the sale of a jumbo journal, ecojot will donate a school workbook to a child in need.

Thanks to Mark Gavin of ecojot for the generous donation of 530 workbooks!

We are thrilled that EcoSmart Products Ltd. donated 408 dry erase markers and refill ink for us to send to Dekpor!

It is a big deal for us to receive this very generous donation. Each classroom has a 'chalkboard' (black paint that is adhered to hand made bricks--yes they are bumpy) and one white board. We are challenged in that all dry erase markers we've purchased have dried up quickly. It is costly to replace them, and so teachers have to go back to using the poor quality chalk on the less-than-adequate 'chalkboards'. We are very excited to have such excellent quality markers AND refill ink to keep our teachers going!

Former Semester at Sea student, Erica Lieppman, was very touched by her experience in Dekpor. In 2014 for her birthday, she ran a successful Indiegogo campaign to raise money for DSDO and collected $2411! The funds were allocated to health care, student and teacher supplies, the food programme and the library. Thank you Erica, for sharing your birthday with the children of Dekpor!
