Greetings Dondi Project Enthusiasts

The Abbey North Drummers continue to drum up enthusiasm for the Dondi Project on their Western Tour.

Dan Beveridge had a good turnout in Regina to the Dondi Drummers Circle on May 31, 2010 - funds raised on Sunday were $1,388.08. A report from the AOTS Western Vice President Harvey Douglas said that there are men still living in Saskatchewan!! Some of the men at Westminister U.C. in Regina were living proof there are still some men in Saskatchewan and they do come out and have fun when given a chance. He was not surprised with the high number of westerners supporting the project.


You can keep up with their blog and twitter updates at the following sites: http://www.dondiproject.com/ or http://donditournews.blogspot.com/

In June we head to Newfoundland to tell the good news story of rebuilding the Lutamo School.

Please keep the people of Angola and the Dondi Project in your thoughts and prayers.

We continue to sign up locations to host our National Drumathon on October 1st and 2nd, 2010.


We will have a minimum of 100 sites with 20 drummers/site each drummer getting $250 in sponsors. This adds up to $500,000!!

Many of you have already supported the Dondi Project with your time, talents and dollars.

We are now asking that you consider a second financial donation. We have raised $140,000 of our goal of $1.3 million dollars.

$1 million for building the Lutamo School, dormitories, and related infrastructure: $100,000 for our Mission & Service Fund; and $200,000 for staff and expenses which will enable us to bring this project to a successful attainment of our goals. Through this project we are energizing men across our church; deepening our partnership with the Evangelical Congregational Church in Angola; planting a seed of hope as the Angolan people seek to move forward as a country of justice and compassion.

Your contributions are making a difference. Your donation will enable us to soon break ground in Dondi!
