Ellen has just paid us her first visit of the new year 2017. She joined us for the Key Stage 1 and 2 Wednesday Music Assemblies to let us know the news from Shekinah Home.  Ellen thanked Ravenstone families for all their support. We have now been Shekinah Home’s partner for one year and can feel proud of what has been achieved during this time.

Ellen Annan joined us in Ravenstone for the whole day.  She spent time in every class, telling us about the challenges that the children have faced and how Shekinah has grown to become home to 30 children.  Her words were inspirational!

At Work Assembly the newly elected representatives from Key Stage 2 presented Ellen with a cheque for £500 which will    be used to repair the minibus and allow the children to get to school safely.  Ellen had the opportunity to meet with some of the parents after assembly and at the end of the school day.  We look forward to her next visit when she returns in March.

END OF 2015 UPDATE

We have worked in partnership with Yameriga School for many years and have helped them tackle some important issues. The village still has significant challenges but the new headteacher is working hard with local projects and things are improving. We feel that it is time to build a new link with a different community in Ghana and our fund raising efforts will be going to support the building of a home for street children near Accra, the Shekinah Children's Home.
