The pictures to the left represent a blast from our (recent) past at FRIEND. They are snapshots of the very first issue of Takitaki. Fast forward to this current edition, and we have an official milestone in the history of our newsletter. This is our twelfth consecutive issue. Takitaki is one year old! The last year has been an eventful one that has provided a lot of newsworthy material. We are happy to have had the opportunity to share it with so many of our partners, friends and supporters. We look forward to bringing you more stories of interest about the work we do at FRIEND and the communities we serve in our efforts to alleviate poverty. Thanks for reading!
