It is sad… and it hurts to see the rapid decline in financial support towards the orphanages/Child and Youth Care Centre – charity organizations that offers much needed child and youth care residential services. A number of Child and Youth Care Centre’s are facing financial difficulties – they are forced to resize and or to close their doors and to focus on other donor/sponsor aligned and or income generating activities, letting go of the true need of bettering lives of the less gifted.

It has been long since we gave an update about the school building project – a key educational development project for our children and the community at large.
One of the biggest needs for the school building project, the roofing, is nearing completion – the contractor has made a commitment that on the first days of the month of March 2019 – he will be done with the installation of the sheeting on the already completed and installed roof trusses of the school building. It certainly gives joy to see this great amount of progress – made possible by you, ordinary men and women.
