IPFW alumnus, IPFWAA board member and vice president of the Rotary Club of Fort Wayne, Jason Daenens, B.S. '08, and Jane O'Sullivan, a former Peace Corps volunteer, worked to raise money to build new classrooms for a school in West Africa.

At an annual Rotary Club fair in Ghana, Daenens learned the need for school books and supplies in Gléi, Togo, a village of about 13,000 people.

"I brought it back to the club with low expectations, and they went for it," said Daenens. Today, Gléi's middle school has four new classrooms.   

In October, a ceremony marked the expansion of the school and thanked Rotarians in Africa and the U.S.----including Fort Wayne----for their help.

"The students were incredible," Daenens said. "That's one of the biggest takeaways from this project."
