Home Safe and Sound
Post by Ann Marie
Mai made it home safely this afternoon, and it's great to have her home. She is super tired by wants to power through it to get back on a regular schedule. Mai had lot's of stories and although she felt good about both the help and supplies the team brought to Sri Lanka, she felt that Ghana needs the help more. She has already made up her mind that she needs to go back to Ghana again. Planning to go back to Ghana will be pretty easy since she has already done it once and has kept in constant contact with the wonderful Coordinator that did so much to help Mai.
Now that Mai is back, she plans to ship to Maggi, the Coordinator in Ghana, the rest of the supplies that they needed. We are waiting for shipping everything out until we receive the grant from Western Digital. We had to make a slight change to the non-profit listing with the IRS so large companies can get credit for the donations. Without the help of everyone who donated, this would be very difficult to do.
Anyway, Mai will take the blog back over after she gets some sleep. In the meantime, she is safely home.

I am happy to know that this post focused on Mai and her journey as a normal student. I know how it feels to be a student with this kind of lifestlye. It's tiring but you don't have a choice because everything is part of learning. Mai is an extraordinary kid who has a huge dream that's why she deserves to get something at the end of this. Aside from being a student, she's also a volunteer for an organization. She's really a busy person but she never complained!
