The Children that are here are repairing the desks, tables and chairs. The children involved are happy to be found in the maintenance group as it is a skill which can be used even at household level. During this exercise the children repaired about 14 desks. The names of the children are; James, Timothy, Samson, Elisha and Brian. A good number of pupils are now able to sit comfortably on the desks. The maintenance is done on a weekly basis every Friday after the check up is done by the maintenance team.

Last Monday everybody in the school were working on tiding up our ground. Litter was picked and the grass cut after the Christmas recess.   In a corner beds for planting sweet potatoes and vegetables were prepared. Letting the children take part in this is an important part of the education.   After taking away some grass we now have a small field to play soccer on again. Even the toilets got a good clean up. Here Prisca from the orphanage shows Aron How it shall be done.

Since 2015 all three hundred and fifty children of the school are offered lunch every school day. It consists of Nshima, which is a very thick porridge made of finely ground corn meal, called mealie meal.It is the staple food here. Beans or soy pieces or sometimes fish is served with it. The cooking is done with localy produced pellets, Supa Moto, which is much better for the environment than char coal. Here the pellets are just being lit.

Last week we were visited by Vision Aid Overseas. Karen Edwards came with her team to screen all children and the staff. Here she sits and talks about the results with Sven Wennhall, an main donor to the school, and Geoffrey Kamutande, the director. (Sven´s shirt was made in the school.)

About half of the staff proved needing glasses. They were offered to buy prescription glasses for USD 3! The…

We wish to thank Anchor of Hope Charities for supporting us by proving a Borehole to our School of Kalindi village. The donation will go along way in providing clean and safe water to the pupils and the villagers.
