A big welcome from your country rep!

August 17, 2012

Hi, my name’s Gebriel and I’m really thrilled to be part of this innovative project that seeks to link one of our communities with our generous donors in Canada through regular blog posting. THANK YOU for joining us as a Village Sponsor – your assistance will create a better future for poor and marginalized children, families and the people who live in Gelan Idero!
I’ve worked for CFTC for the past six years in the capacity of Country Representative and my role in this project is to collect and distribute all the news and updates we get directly from the EDA program officer at Gelan Idero village.

We’ll be bringing you regular photos, videos and blog posts from the village. And, I’m delighted to announce that our first set of posts will be direct from three residents of the Gelan Idero community who have graciously agreed to participate in this blog as your “on-the-ground” village liaisons! More from them soon!

We hope this becomes a vibrant online community, and will work really hard to provide you with an interesting and meaningful experience. We welcome your comments and questions! If there’s something you’d like to see added to the page, let me know by commenting below or emailing me at [email protected].
