From local to global

Taking the reality of rural Kafanchan across the world

The Fantsuam Foundation team that attends national and global events always has to justify and clarify its presence and participation at these events.

What a difference a place makes.

When John was in the UK some time ago, he told me that he had managed to write about seven proposals in a few weeks. In contrast the work would take weeks or months if he was working in Fantsuam in Nigeria.

It is easy to take for granted, in places where there is more or less uninterrupted electricity supply and internet access, how great is the challenge to get even the simplest things done. In Kafanchan there is rarely electricity and it is of low or fluctuating voltage which damages  equipment.
