We are hoping that through education the children will develop skills that will benefit them and empower them to move on in their lives, their communities and their country.

Update from Chitemo and Nyhinila
I am delighted to report the following:
Pastor Festo of Chitemo and Nyhinila villages has
informed us that the builders of the two pre-schools were in the last stage of erecting the roofs. In the coming two weeks our Coordinator in Mpwapwa Diocese Rev. Agripa
will visit the pre-schools and send us further information on progress and hopefully photographs. Lutu, the young woman from Chitemo is undertaking her pre-school teacher training course and doing well in her studies. Last month Rev Agripa was in
Dodoma and visited her training college and she was very pleased to receive the visit.
With regards to the 300 mosquito nets which we delivered during our last visit in June 2013
Pastor Festo confirmed that they have been helpful
especially at this time of the year when there are a lot of mosquitoes. The villagers are experiencing difficulty in obtaining the special spray to maintain the efficiency of the nets. However, I have been assured that the lack of spray does not prevent them from
using the nets as they still prevent the mosquitoes from biting the children when
asleep. Pastor Festo also confirmed the need for more nets which we hope to purchase during our next visit in October 2014.
Life is moving forward with the
installation of electricity to the Pastors House and the church. It has been suggested that it would be most helpful to the Pastor and the villages if a laptop and printer could be provided. It is hoped that we shall be able to take out a laptop and perhaps purchase a printer during our visit.
