December is that time of year to pause and reflect. At Humanitas Afrika, we look back to the goals we set ourselves at the beginning of 2012, we reminisce the achievements that stood us tall, we recall the challenges we had to overcome, we remember the hurdles we could not cross and we recollect the criticisms that made us rethink. Above all, we hold dear all those who stood by us and gave us hope, encouragement and support, morally or materially.

Humanitas Afrika supports not only primary school children but also a few young people who have decided to learn a trade. Most of them are being trained under a master or a mistress and it usually takes three years to prepare them for their occupation. Recently, they have sent us some few pictures. Take a look at Esther, Anani, Denise and Bright who are benefiting from the sponsorship programme supported by our Czech patrons. Most patrons have been supporting these young people since their primary school years. Esther has also written a very nice letter to her supporter:


In September last year, we have celebrated the success of secondary school students who have passed their final WAEC exams with excellent results. We are now looking for patrons who would be willing to help us finance their studies at Ghana universities or colleges. Help us encourage the talent and ambition of these young Ghanaians.
