A year ago on this day we launched nKoso.org. Wow! Time is flying! I can't believe it has already been a year! By the end of the day on April 15, 2013, 8 students were fully funded. I was blown away. In a day and age when we have countless choices and opportunities to spend money, I was so touched that so many good-hearted people chose to join us in supporting education for some wonderful students. I can't thank you enough for being so amazing. We are so excited about nKoso and the work that we are doing together. It's about more than just education; we're sending a positive and loving message to the world.

I've come to believe that nKoso was born out of gratitude. Spending time in Ghana taught me to appreciate all that I have and when that shift occurred, I saw how I could give back. It felt bigger than just what I could do and more about a responsibility to step into a world bigger than myself. I know that I'm not the only one who feels a call to make a difference and create an impact, even if it's just in the life of one person. nKoso is designed to serve amazing students and families in Ghana, but it's also here to serve the wonderfully, kind, generous people like you that feel so strongly in your heart that you can make a difference. You don't have to be a billionaire to do some good in the world. You need only give up an occasional latte or beer and you can easily make a difference. A real, significant difference. Because not only does contributing to an education of a child give an amazing gift, but it sends a message of love around the world. And that can't be ignored. That will have ripple effects and you never know how far that $5 donation will carry. Ghandi said it best, "In a gentle way, you can shake the world." I want to embody this and nKoso has become a vehicle. I hope it can be a vehicle for you also.

Please celebrate with us! Join us in donating to a student or share our cause with your friends and family! In the past 12 months we have funded 80 students through the loving support of 331 donations. Thank you so much for the tremendous and ongoing support. We can't believe how far we've come and are so excited for all that is to come! Stay tuned for exciting developments in our second year!
