African Outreach

Bob Wolff, a longtime member of ECIBA, is planning a May trip to Ghana, Africa, to work with a local community there  to instruct beekeepers in methods of developing value-added products related to bees.  The date is rapidly approaching, and one of the members of the team, a young woman from Cedar Rapids, Emma Kieckhaefer, is trying to raise the money to be able to go.  She has set up a GoFundMe page to help raise enough money to pay for her visa, passage, board, etc.  Any help would be appreciated!  Bob plans to report back to our club at the June meeting and it would be great if we can help this young person share in this experience. 
The link to her page is here: Gofundme

Thanks for any support you can give.
