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.
Gusau, Zamfara State.
In Gusau our goal is to encourage our Nigerian partners, assess the progress of the school and discuss the future development. We already know that the first priority is the building of dormitories to accommodate students from rural areas.
Kafanchan, Kaduna State
After our visit to Gusau, we will travel south to the Kafanchan area in Kaduna State, where we will rejoin the rest of the team. While they work at a medical medical outreach, we will visit the various schools and clean water projects that AEP is helping to sponsor. We will use this opportunity for dialogue with our partners to plan for future projects based on current progress in the renovation and new construction we are funding.
Mission trips are a highlight of our work; we receive as much strength and encouragement from personal contact with our partners as we hope to bring to them.
