A joint team from both Africa Education Partnership (AEP) and Kateri Medical Services, is in the planning stages for a spring trip to Nigeria. Two board members from AEP, Peter Dewberry and Elaine Chagnon are part of this team. The plans include visits to our original project in Gusau and then to the Kafanchan area to assess progress of our current work and assessing next steps.
Under the leadership of Mrs. Nana Dogo, a Women’s Center has been built. The focus of the center is to empower women by providing them with the skills needed to earn money for themselves and their families. The region is rural with subsistence farming as the main source of income. Poverty is most evident and acute among 2500 widows in this community.

Students at Graceland International School and in the various Kafanchan schools are encouraged to think about their futures. What interests do they have? What opportunities do they have for going on to college or university? How should they best prepare to fulfill their goals?
Students’ Day at Kafanchan Junior/Secondary School.
This is a very special annual event at the school, in which the students interact with each other and their teachers. The school’s various cultural clubs present dramas, along with a variety of athletic competitions and games. Students look forward to these activities as they build confidence in their talents and abilities.
