Listening to our partners in Gusau.
The lines of communication are kept open between the AEP Board and our partners in Nigeria. We believe it is important for us to listen and learn from them and their experience. We have had extensive discussions with our partners, the building committee and the committee for Grace International School (GIS). The members of these committees are well informed in their respective fields and have a clear vision of what they want GIS to achieve. Discussions were conducted with parents and teachers to hear their concerns and wishes. We were able to experience the enthusiasm and confidence of the people first hand. Their generosity and gratitude towards our team was humbling and greatly appreciated. We were enriched by both the simplicity and difficulty of life in an emerging third world country. And while traveling to visit may not be for everyone, AEP can certainly benefit from support here at home. This project is a large one and funding is crucial to ensure its completion.
