Dear Friends & Supporters,


We Did it in Afamanaso!!! Let’s Do it Again for Yilo Krobo!!!


On February 22nd 2009, Planting Technology International (PTI), the community members of Afamanaso and guests celebrated the dedication of the Afamanaso ICT Center—a year after Tyler’s first visit to Afamanaso, his dream....our dream is realized!


Prior
to the construction of the ICT Center, there were no computers in the 3
community schools, so ICT (Information & Communication Technology)
classes were taught in theory with no practical usage.

internet, and print documents for a nominal fee.

We need to raise $30,000

April to support this project, as well as seeking additional
sponsorship in Ghana.
