First of all, thank you Ryan for such an informative and straightforward view of the GWF in Kate’s words, related to how the organization was able to not only survive the lockdown, but continue to thrive. Congratulations to you, Kate, your staff and most of all your students for putting in the work to remain successful. As a former teacher, I’m proud to continue to contribute to this NGO. Continued success!
