HAPPY HOLIDAYS
 
As 2018 comes to an end, we want to first thank ALL the parents for allowing us to serve your children. Without you, there is no GapBuster, Inc. Plus, I want to send a special thanks to our volunteers especially those who shared their time with us on Thanksgiving Day. This is the season of giving!

Now as we reflect on one of the accomplishments we are most proud of – serving our community.  GapBuster’s Inc. and Hope Restored, Inc. hosted a community “Thanksgiving dinner” on Thursday, November 22 at the Silver Spring Civic Center and the “spirit of giving” was woven into the fabric of this event.  In addition to providing meals for the homeless and elderly, it was a unique opportunity for community members to break bread together, meet new friends, and share their expressions of gratitude for their many blessings.

Ghana, Africa welcomes GapBuster

On June 2017, GapBuster was incorporated as a Non-Government Organization (NGO) in Ghana. GapBuster plans to expand our STEAM program “Building Scholars for the Future” targeting girls ages 11 to 18 into Ghana. GapBuster Ghana will host a pilot program in Effiduase, New Juaben, Ghana partnering with Effiduase Methodist Junior High School. We hope to kick off in January 2019. The chief of the town, Nana Okoawia, has donated space in the town’s community center to GapBuster to open a technology center and community library. The center NEEDS work and we NEED your help. We are collecting DONATIONS of any amount. Your dollars can go a LONG way in Ghana.


This year GapBuster took over 50 talented young students from Montgomery and Prince George’s County to compete in NSBE44.
