August 30th and 31st Asante Africa Foundation CEO & Founder, Erna Grasz, traveled to her home state of Texas and visited Corpus Christi for speaking engagements and events resulting in generous gifts totally $8,600. These gifts will start to fund the construction of a girls’ dormitory at Nyahururu Primary School in Kenya!
Elizabeth Reese hosted two events at her lovely home complete with authentic African meals prepared by Sadia Nuhu, South African wine tasting courtesy of Eddie Buhidar and the guys at Liquid Town, African dancing, and a presentation by Erna that opened the hearts and minds of guests.
Erna also spoke to students’ at Corpus Christi Montessori and Windsor Park Elementary Schools and engaged the Northwest Rotary Club during their weekly meeting at The Chicken Shack.
In just two days Corpus Christi gave $8,600 going toward the construction of a girls’ dormitory at Nyahuru Primary School in Kenya, where nearly half of the student body is made up of children whose education was derailed when their families fled the political conflict and ethnic violence of December 2007.
Thank you to the life long family of friends and supporters we made in Corpus Christi, August 2011!
