Dear Fregenet supporters,
Our dedicated Ethiopian-based board of directors that oversees the running of Fregenet Kidan Lehitsanat (FKL) School, through its recently created communication committee, has put together a very thorough description of the school and its accomplishments from FKL’s inception to the present. I think you’ll be interested to read the local perspective on a project that the board and all of our supporters have worked so hard to create and maintain.
As useful as it is to have the information contained in the newsletter, I think you’ll agree with me that it is of great value to have a local volunteer board that is so active and dedicated to this work and that benefits them not a penny. The work that they have done and continue to do, whether it is finding and hiring the best staff, meeting with government officials and neighborhood association members, fund raising, or a thousand other duties they perform, comes from the heart and is motivated by the feeling of satisfaction and joy at seeing the lives of young children changed for the better.
Please take a moment to read the first quarterly FKL Review, in its entirety and join me in heartfelt thanks to the local board and the group of people who put in so many volunteer hours to pull this document together.
Tafesse Woubshet, President
The Fregenet Foundation
