If you would like to contribute any of these things please email innovation@voicesofafrica.org and we can help you to organize to get them to us! I am coming to the US for a short time in May, so if you would like to donate some money for me to buy these things while I am there on business (only 2 days) we would thankfully accept.

Blessings from all of us to all of you!
