Latest news re Building of pre-school for orphans

I have received an email from Mpwapwa Diocese and all is well, the rains continue. The people are busy with agriculture and this will continue until the end of April. May will be a time for building. The people of Chitemo and Nyhinila will then start to collect the stones,sand,dig foundations and make the bricks. An exciting time ahead as I shall be out there at the end of June when the work will be in progress. I hope to be able to help with the brick making and any other work that might be helpful, rather than hindrance! Accompanying me to the villages will be students from Trinity School Belvedere, an assistant head and their Chaplain.The young people who are 17 and 18 years of age,three girls and two boys, are keen to work with the orphan children to introduce fun/sport activities and some simple forms of education. I hope it will be an introduction to the benefits of education for the pre-school age children and motivate them and the community to move ahead with the school project. The villagers are in the process of identifying those suitable to train as pre-school teachers. The funding for their training will be a commitment for SEEDS4Tanzania charity. My thanks to all who are already showing their support for SEEDS.

Happy New Year 2012

An exciting time for 'seeds4tanzania'. A New Year with many challenges ahead. I have heard that Mpwapwa Diocese has received the long awaited rains in abundance. Rain mean crops, crops means food and funds.  
With regards to the building project of the Pre-school water means that bricks can be made. I hope to hear soon that plans are under way to collect the stones for the foundations and then in due course foundations can be dug. We have a long way to go but it will be worth all the effort.
