Dear Friends,

In the spirit of American heart month that is filled with love and compassion, we are grateful to spotlight those who have made an impact on Itiah Angels for Learning’s mission. I would like to take a moment to thank everyone who has donated so far this year. Without your encouragement, the work that our volunteers are doing to create sustainability in a part of the world that is highly chaotic would not be possible.

With this edition of the newsletter, we will be learning about the challenges the students face in order to get to school and how together, we are making a difference to help them focus on learning. We implore you to please read the articles. The topics are researched and written by our student newsletter volunteers.

We wish to spotlight food insecurities that the girls are facing at this time with regards to Food insecurities, their need for good walking shoes. We also want to address the need to equip each  student with a tablet so they can continue their school work when the streets are too dangerous to navigate.

One last note, in July, we will be celebrating the fifth anniversary of Itiah Angels for Learning. The celebration “Gala of Angels” will be held in Princeton, New Jersey, home of one of the oldest colleges in the country. We hope we can count on your participation by attending and becoming a sponsor or patron for the event. 

Please keep an eye out for more information on the upcoming Gala, our “Love is in the Air Meet & Greet” event to learn how to sponsor a girl which is being held at Cafe Du Pain in Lawrenceville and our participation at the 10th Annual Black History Celebration on Saturday, February 25, 2023 from 3 to 8 PM at Lawrence High School.  We wish you a happy Valentine’s Day! Enjoy Superbowl Sunday!
