Since the beginning of July AfA has three staff working permanently at the AfA office: Mr. Bouaphet Khautisen as secretary of the association, Mrs. Malayphone Khounno as office assistant and Mr. Phatthana Somsanith as finacial officer and accountant. This became possible thanks to the generous support provided by CRS and AusAID. Currently the accounting systems for AfA, VAC and the Scholarship Fund are updated and the routines for regular reporting as required by the Ministry of Home Affairs are being installed.
In the meantime also VAC develops fast. The number of kids increased to 19, the number of teachers to eleven. As we expected the ratio of families not able to pay the full school fee is increasing. Currently only for six out of the 19 children full fees are paid.
We started to install a sensory room which will open new opportunities for therapy activities, providing also a lot of fun for the kids. So far we installed the first components of the lightning system. The sound system will follow soon.
Many thanks to our latest donors, Tanja Höink and Martina Dempf.
