The Groton, NY chapter of the International Rotary Club recently donated the proceeds of their fall calendar sale to support the work of CorAfrica. We are extremely grateful for their generous contribution, which is only the most recent installment in a long history of support from the Groton Rotary Club. They donated a total of $700, which will go a long way in moving CorAfrica’s work forward in Cross River State, Nigeria. In particular, their donation will go toward completing the construction of our skills acquisition center in Ipong-Obudu at Little Flower School. Each contribution we receive brings us closer to completion, and we have only $10,000 left to raise in order to finish the project and begin holding classes for local community members, particularly women. Training at the center will provide local entrepreneurs with the technical skills, business acumen, financial management tools, and mentoring they need to start or expand their own business. The economic empowerment and financial independence developed at our centers raise the standard of living for entire families and, little by little, entire communities.
