I think this is a wonderful idea! I really do hope the children enjoy the festive season.
Careful who you ask for dining suggestions. Those Brits eat some very strange foods, e.g. "Toad in The Hole", and I shudder to think what those Aussies throw on the "barbie".
I just read where the World Food Program, besides providing nutritious lunches to students along with health education for students and staff, have started on-site school gardens that will produce healthy foods.
Chrissie will be away for a few days as she has been diagnosed with a bout of tonsilitis.
As you all know, she is a trooper and will be back very soon...In the meantime, please keep posting in the discussion threads. Let's impress Chrissie upon her return with a buzzing activity in the village!
If you have any questons, don't hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Happy New Year - looking forward to being able to get some funds rolling in in 2007! :-D
Happy New Year, everyone!
I think I remember seeing a file with a copy of the Boston Self Help Group's registry?
Can you guys remind me where it is?
Thanks! (and save me some figgy pudding!) ;-)
I've posted this over in the fundraising action, but just in case, I've attached the registration doc here as well for you. Hope this helps!
[b]Hi All! This is a copy of the newsletter I have just sent everyone. Check those inboxes - or those spam filters, they have a habit of collecting there for some reason .... :[/b]
Well, this is our very first offical newsletter of 2007 - welcome back all after the traditional festivities!
Now that the turkey and mince pies are all but a distant memory, we all need to make a few New Year resolutions that are not easy to break and it's a lot easier than you think!
We're rolling ahead with the school, but we now have a few tasks that we need to complete to move it forward further so that we can start thinking about the actual building! Below I've put together a set of tasks: take a quick look, there might be one that is right up your street! Each task doesn't take long at all to achieve. Please either email me ( email@example.com ) or post on the actions if you can do one of the tasks outlined:
1. Spend 15 minutes to fire up your search engines online and find examples of budgets templates that we could use in our Business Plan. Post any examples you find on the Business Plan action!
2. Are you someone with a head for figures? Have you ever built a budget before? Email me now if you a few hours over the next few weeks to help build our budget!
3. Spend 15 minutes to fire up your search engines online and find examples of funding proposals we could use to help fill out funding applications or use as a supporting document. Post any examples you find on our Business Plan action!
4. Are you a budding journalist? Why not help us put together a quick email we can sent to existing organisations to find out when their funding rounds are! Doesn't have to be long, just to find out the vital info! Post your drafts on our funding action!
5. Spend five minutes sending out an email to a few organisations and let us know of any responses. Let me know if this appeals as we'll need a team shortly!
If any of the above tasks appeal, please feel free to contact me either through the site or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll be more than happy to give you some further information or tips on how to complete your mission!
Do you think the authoritative letter is ready to enable our Website go live?
Thank you I received the CD!!
I haven't had time to listen to it yet but will do this week!
Also re the pictures and the batik picture - would you like us to sell these? If so, please provide unit cost for each so that you factor in a profit to go to the school and let me know it, with cost of postage.
Many thanks - will get onto the CD very shortly!! :-D
Hey Lynley this is excellent news! Stephen will be really happy to know it got to you in one piece! It's greally good to know that everything is starting to come together in all corners of our project.
Hi Stephen and all
I found a template that we could use for image consent. I've changed it a bit to reflect our organisation.
I just altered the consent form a little more to make it more child protection focussed and a bit 'legal-ese'
Just had a quick peek and it's definitely better! Stephen - what do you think? Will this be ok to use? Once we have all the forms back we can make the site live. I have a feeling this might be a bit of a mamoth task your end - I hope you have volunteers in your community who can help with the task of getting this organised.
Remember, you will need to make copies - one to go the parent / guardian and the original to be filed with the school. These should be kept for a minimum of 5 years. (i'm quoting mininum for the UK - not too sure where Kenya stand on the Data Protection Act.)
Hope this helps!
