Dear Supporters,

Welcome to the first edition of our newsletter!

We are pleased to announce the launch of our monthly e-newsletter. We decided to start this newsletter as an opportunity to connect with our readers and supporters. We realize that it is essential to have a way to share information about what we are up to and what our goals and projections are for the future. We plan to send out our newsletters at the middle of each month, and we will regularly create original content in that regard.

It has been a long-time goal of ours to create a newsletter that will push our mission and vision out to the world, and by taking this step, we hope to give you inside access to Footprints in Africa. We invite you to subscribe to our monthly newsletter so that you can get exciting news updates. We hope that these newsletters will be a welcome addition to your inbox. Our overarching goal is to create a genuine piece of content, beneficial to our readers, and candid. We decided to choose a monthly newsletter format because we wanted to ensure that our correspondence is not overwhelming.

We are excited to develop and build on this mode of communication with you all. We also want to add that your privacy is important to us! We want to assure you that we will not at any time sell, rent, trade, lease, or give your contact information to anyone. We also welcome you to share your thoughts and ideas with us by contacting us or reaching out to us through email. You can find our contact information at the bottom of our website’s homepage.

If you wish to unsubscribe at any time, please use the unsubscribe link at the bottom of each issue that we send out. We look forward to hearing from you and sharing some of the exciting work that we are doing. Without further ado, we welcome you to read the first issue of our e-newsletter!

The pandemic has thrust us into uncertain times riddled with many unknown variables and many plans hanging in the air. Case in point, we recently planned a trip to Ethiopia that we subsequently had to cancel due to rising concerns about the spread of the virus in the country and concerns that there would be another shutdown. Although we made the tough decision to wait it out, we remain firmly committed to the mission and vision of Footprints in Africa.

Africa is a beautiful continent, rich in resources, diversity, and vast culture. Its people are warm and welcoming, but there is also a need to reach the underserved population of certain countries and communities within Africa. Our overarching goal is to be the voice for the underserved in those communities and meet them where they are so that we can make a difference. We started this Nonprofit as a way to reach out to poverty-stricken communities in some of the most rural areas in Africa. Our mission and vision, both powerful, hold us as an organization to a high standard and continue to inspire us to want to go the extra mile. We are willing to learn, strategize, and adapt to changing trends in the Nonprofit world as we go forward.

We are acutely aware that the change that we seek to create will not happen overnight but will take a lot of consistency, dedication, hard work, and deliberate effort. We are ultimately dedicated to establishing programs that will promote the ideals of this cause. Currently, we have four programs that we have implemented so far into our system, and they are also outlined on our website as Clothing and Shoes, Community Outreach, Education, and Eye Healthcare. We believe that these four programs will make a lasting, long-term impact on the lives of the members of the communities that we will connect with.

Stay tuned for more, and stay safe!
