Pouring the Lemonade
That is simply fabulous news! I’m also dumbfounded that your group is able to raise $1,000 from selling rice crisps and lemonade. What is your secret? We are grateful to Paola for suggesting us to your group and for the hard work of each of your members in raising this money.
We were proud to be included on your list of NGOs doing fine work in Africa.

Rice Crispy Treats Display
It humbles me so much to see and read about your dedication and involvement in support of noble causes in Africa. Congratulations to you and the team and we are soo proud of you, your team and all those involved. Your donation supports the education of Mark Rabongo who is currently in his final year of secondary school. This means a lot to him and to us as a fund.
As you do this great work, we pray that you also continue to excel in all .
All the best great PFA Team!
