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.
