ACE Invests in Eco-Friendly Data Structures donates trees.

As every year ACE has sent New Year cards to all its contacts.
This year (2008) ACE decided to plant trees for each of ACE's contacts.
Fruit trees will be donated and planted in the Volta district in the south of Ghana, one tree for each of ACE's contacts.
Half a dozen farmers will plant these trees on three acres of land and the resulting harvest will be sold.
Part of the proceeds will be for the farmer and the rest will be donated to a nearby school.

As a result of the previously held ‘rainbow fundraiser’ and the Christmas fair, which raised € 200, - and € 315, - respectively, and of the Christmas collection, which raised an as yet unknown amount, we will be able to cover a sizable part of the roof.

There is a so-called ‘leerkist’ (i.e. an educational box).
The box will contain materials for schools and for all kinds of presentations: suggestions for lessons, different items from Ghana, and information about the Foundation.
We aim to put together several of these boxes, which will be available on loan.
