Dear Mr. Broady,
Copey Learning Center is a non-profit organization. It was created on June 26, 2010 by a group of Copey citizens, mostly farmers, whose mission was to promote the conservation of the environment and social development through learning.
After four years of volunteer work, the association feels that it is achieving its initial goal of providing opportunities for Copey’s community members to learn about topics that interest them.
The Board of Directors of the Copey Learning Center received your letter with much happiness and gratitude. Diversifying the types of volunteer collaboration Copey Learning Center receives is necessary as we continue strengthening our four units. We thank you for your support.
Currently the following units make up the body of Copey Learning Center:
- Environment – Promotes an attitude of conscientiousness and conservation of the natural environment.
- Culture – Promotes respect for local culture and exchange of customs and traditions from the community at local, regional, national and global levels.
- Languages – Provides foreign language lessons. Currently the Languages Unit provides the opportunity to attend English classes to approximately thirty students between the ages of six and twelve. Students take classes with native English speakers, who work on a volunteer basis.
- Tourism – Promotes agro-tourism activities with a low environmental and social impact.
We are excited to continue to work with you to achieve our mission. We appreciate your donation of funds to provide scholarships to under-privileged students in the community, your creation of a pen-pal system so that students in Copey can communicate with students in the United States, and the many other ways you’ve supported us.
We feel that it is now important to define how we can work together in the future. We await your response to this letter with ideas for continued collaboration and next steps.
As founder, director of the Board of Representatives, and legal representative of the Copey Learning Center Association, I wish to express my sincere thanks for your support. Please know that we are available to you for whatever you need, from coordinating to realizing projects. Please feel free to contact me personally if you need anything.
Please let us know next time you plan to visit Copey as it would be a pleasure to organize a meeting of the Board of Directors in your honor.
