Donation of 100 Books to Pokuase Methodist Basic 1 JHS

Yesterday morning, 4th March 2014, we were at Pokuase Methodist Basic 1 JHS to donate the 100 books we told you about in our previous post.

We did well to get there on time.
The headmaster, who was expecting us on the day, called an assembly of the students and introduced us. We spoke the students for a few minutes and presented the books to the headmaster.

We then spent 30 minutes with the students letting each student read a few lines. This gave us an idea of how to organize the students in groups of either 6 or 7.
These groupings are for the term and will help us monitor the progress the students on a smaller scale at each weekly visit.
A 45-60 minute period has been allotted into their weekly time-table to further this.

After we were done for the day they went on their usual break.

We will follow up weekly with exercises, questions they might have, and read with them.

We can still do with your help by donating books or money.

New year, better results.

Happy new year! (the year is still new right? even if it’s February :-))

We hope 2014 has been good to you so far. At Love Rocks, we are geared up and ready for this year to be even better than last year. Remember READiness? The poetry and music show we put together to raise funds to buy books for the students we have been mentoring. Below are some of the pictures from the event.

Thanks to everyone who came out that night to support us, the organizers, the mc, the artists and the wonderful audience. Thanks to you guys, we were able to raise ¢802 cedis. With that money, we have been able to purchase 100 copies each of 3 books:

The gods are not to blame by Ola Rotimi, 

The marriage of Anansewaa by Efua Sutherland and

Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens. Making a total of 300 books.

We will be distributing these books to 3 schools, giving each school a mix up of 100 books each. 

We will be sending video and photo updates when next we make a trip to these schools. We couldn’t have made this possible without you. Thank you once again!

We still want to reach a larger number of students, If anyone is interested in donating books or money, please send an email to loverocs@gmail.com
