Wedding Bells and Babies in Ghana 
BBSCF CF (695) 5

We owe a large part of our success in Ghana to two outstanding employees - Jim Sanahene, Musical Village Assistant Program Manager, and Frank Nkansah, Accountant and Musical Village Facilities Manager. Both Frank and Jim manage everyday operations in Ghana, lead our wonderful staff, and mentor the students. The children in Ghana absolutely love both Frank and Jim, as do all of us here in the US. 

Jim shared exciting news with us in January that he became a father for the second time to a beautiful baby boy, Cyrus.  Below is a picture of Jim with his family. Jim's wife, Mavis, is a Physician's Assistant at the Legon Hospital at the University of Ghana. They have a beautiful daughter, Heroine, who is three years old.Jim and Family

Frank also had great news to share with us - he will be getting married this coming May! Frank and his beautiful fiancé, Cynthia Adusei, are very excited to be married and go on a honeymoon! Cynthia is a Relationship Manager at Cal Bank, which is a local bank in Accra. Frank and Fiance

Friends of BBSCF, 

We've seen the Ice Bucket Challenge, the Twizzler Challenge, the Selfless Selfie Challenge, and now the Brigitte & Bobby Sherman Children's Foundation has a challenge of our own! Don't worry, you don't have to dump a bucket of ice on your head or eat a Twizzler with a friend - all you have to do is share our Facebook and Twitter page. That doesn't seem like too hard of a challenge, right?

For the past few months we have focused on increasing awareness about BBSCF on our social media sites. We currently have 770 Facebook followers, which is GREAT! But we want to reach even more supporters out there. We would like to engage with everyone that cares about education, music, and deserving children - and we are challenging you to help us do this. 

Aren't you relieved our challenge doesn't require any ice? BBSCF is challenging you to share our Facebook and Twitter page with all of your friends, family, and followers. Help us reach 1,000 followers on Facebook and engage with 20 new Twitter followers by June 30

If you accept this challenge and help us reach our goal of 230 new Facebook followers, and 20 new Twitter followers we can promise you the ultimate reward. If you liked the Valentine's Day Duet Brigitte and Bobby shared with you, then we can promise you'll love our celebratory song if we meet our goal! Brigitte and Bobby are preparing another never-before released song and they want to share it with Foundation supporters!

Please join us in the #bbscfchallenge and help us reach our goals. We want to know when you share our social media pages with friends, so be sure to post on our Facebook page and tweet us letting us know - don't forget to use #bbscfchallenge. It is a lot easier than pouring ice on your head! 

Biakoye, 
Brigitte Poublon and Bobby Sherman

Waterfalls, hikes, and nature, oh my!

During Spring Break in Ghana our students in Accra and Ada enjoyed two days of educational field trips with BBCSF. Our students in Ada visited the Boti Waterfalls on March 12 and 13. They spent the two days hiking, enjoying beautiful nature, and learning about the various plants and wildlife they came across during their visit.

They learned so much on the visit, and enjoyed visiting the ancient caves where their ancestors used to visit and tell stories. For additional pictures from the Boti Waterfall field trip visit our website and Facebook page.

Our students in Accra also had exciting field trips planned over their Spring Break. The kindergarteners, Prince and Princess, had a blast learning about aviation and science at the Aviation Center in Accra. Don't you just love these precious smiles? Visit our website to see additional pictures from the Aviation Center Field Trip.

On Friday, March 6 Ghana celebrated 58 years of independence from Britain. Our students marched in the parade with their peers, representing the Asi-Daahey International School where they attend school. It was a day filled with parades, music, and celebration. Happy Independence Day Ghana! More pictures from the day can be found on our website: Independence Day Parade.
