A Ringing Endorsement

I met Janissa towards the end of last year and think that the project she is running is wonderful.

Anyone running a project of any sort can take notes from the processes they have put in place to ensure commitment from the children, teachers and more importantly the community. This is NOT another project where a bunch of computers are handed over and everyone pats themselves on their backs, but rather a well thought out process culminating in an improved lifestyle for the children.

Definitely worth getting involved with/finding out about.

Sorry I've Been Away

I apologize for not keeping this blog up-to-date.  In the latter half of 2011, I was overwhelmed with work demands from several other nonprofits I help.  I've taken steps to balance my workload and get help with posting L2L news to this blog. Watch for posts in the next few weeks covering things we've accomplished, problems we've encountered, and progress we've made in the past 6 months.
