To honour and acknowledge our extraordinary connection with this small country and in particular this small village, Jan would like to focus on supporting children in this community. She was struck by how happy the children were and how, whilst materially they had very little, what they did have was meticulously cared for.
A good education is viewed as a key to the future.
The gifts Jan took were received with such joy and openness, however she also became more resolved to let people learn more about our connection to this country…
• How such a little, to us, could make such a difference.
• How recognizing this special bond is honoured and honourable.
Whilst in Ailalec, speaking with the Village Council, they unanimously approved the establishment of a Scholarship in the name of ‘Nicolay & Nicolof’ to further Higher Education for two students each year (a boy & a girl).
~ This led to AtTS being established.
