We are especially grateful to the La Mesa Presbyterian Church for their support as a fiscal agent. They have opened their doors to us and hosted our programs including English tutoring training classes, board meetings, Village Feasts with the refugee families and community supporters and more. Thanks to their pastor Trey Hammond for his continual support.
We also thank the Self-Development of People for their partnership during the 2012-2013 fiscal year. They have given generous support which has helped us with being able to fund child-care, marketing, purchasing of sewing machines, fabrics and other much needed supplies for our sewing center. Without their support we also would not have had the high-quality fabrics needed to host our first WGP Fashion Show fund-raising event in June 2012. Much thanks!!
