Programs
The new year has brought a refreshing wave of activity on all three programs. Although we are still ironing out some obstacles, we have managed to get all three South Africa programs started while redirecting Hygiene Matters to Togo.

will be ready by March and will help to ensure that iMatter holds it own in the somewhat rigid national curriculum.

Project AIM
Facilitator training took place at the end of January, and we now have 4 operating facilitators. They will begin the rst wave of the program on February 18. Promotional materials such as yers, pens and t-shirts have all been prepared and are ready for the start of the program.

Families Matter! Program


Wave 1 began at all sites with attendance at 84% of projected goals. This was due to wave kickoff falling so close to the Christmas holidays and a rocky start at the Youth for Christ sites. Our National FMP Manager, Stanley Nyanyirai, is working intensively with YFC to empower effective managers. We have been impressed with the progress made by such a new team and look forward to more efcient performance during Wave 2. February will bring CDC facilitator trainings and the completion of Wave 1. Wave 2 is set to start on March 11.

Hygiene Matters
Efforts have been redirected away from the Central African Republic. We are now working in partnership with OneHope to explore the possibilities of Hygiene Matters in Togo. Books are scheduled to arrive by April and trainings are tentatively scheduled for May, funding pending.

iMatter
We are very excited to report that 9 Department of Education staff members were trained as Master Trainers in North West Province, and will begin training teachers in February. Training of Master Trainers has unfortunately been delayed in the other 5 provinces due to hesitation on the part of the DoE and confusion related to the transition between Reaching a Generation and Hope Education. These 5 trainings of Master Trainers are projected to be completed by midMarch. Supplemental Material Specialists have been very helpful in assisting in the writing of grade-specic lesson plans to be used this year. We anticipate that the lesson plan booklets

Immediate Needs
iMatter is understaffed due to the loss of a Training Specialist and the upcoming maternity leave of another Training Specialist. Julius Kamera is currently stepping in to ll this gap, but we hope to have necessary replacements within the next month. Warehouse rental and nalization of our registration with South African Revenue Services (SARS) are still pending. The Hygiene Matters program planning has revealed a pressing need for a research consultant to oversee the outcomes testing of the biological and educational components of the program. This research consultant would also be useful in carrying out another learner survey among iMatter learners in South Africa.

Grant Year 5 Budget & Program Goals

Opportunities
iMatter expansion could become a possibility within the next year. The US team is currently working with Scripture Union of Kenya to tailor the iMatter program for implementation in 15 Kenyan counties, or about 1/3 of the country. The program would reach 45,000 learners in the rst year. We are diligently preparing proposal packets and seeking to raise the $670,000 that will be needed for the program. As mentioned, Hygiene Matters is quickly taking shape for implementation in Togo. Funding needs amount to $150,000, and we are also working on proposal packets for this program. In addition to these two major initiatives, we are still working on the concept of a slum development program in India called Beyond the Present, and a state-side iteration of Project AIM. Donations are being accepted toward all of these opportunities.
