Art with Ms. Armah, Headmistress of PAAJAF Educational Institute
To our students, parents, local and international community – Greetings from the PEI Administration!
Glory be to our Most High God for bringing us back once again to commence the 4th week of the 2nd term of the 2018/2019 academic year. With sound minds and great aspirations our scholars, teachers and staff embrace the gift and challenge of paving the path to success thorough education.
Our successes are abundant to date. Week 4 is sure to add to our bounty.
For our Parents – the PAAJAF Foundation is working to expand our community in the United States of America. We will create and register the “Friends of PAAJAF”. Our purpose is to unite our well-wishers and volunteers in a common purpose – Education. Together we will make a difference locally in Gbawe and impact the lives of others across the globe. We will provide regular updates.
To our greater local and international community – if you are interested in volunteering to help with the development of Friends of PAAJAF or if you have questions and concerns, please direct your correspondence to our USA Director, Isabelle A. Harman, at [email protected]. Thank you.
