A huge THANK YOU to all you generous people who responded to our ‘buy a desk for Christmas’ campaign. We raised enough to equip the top class of Kochilira Primary with desks for everyone. As you can see, Headteacher Hestings, with his Deputy, the chairman and secretary of the School Committee, are very pleased with the result.
Now we are beginning the construction of the Girls’ hostel at nearby Tidzuke Orphan Care, that we wrote to you about in March. This hostel will help those girls who win a place at the local secondary school but cannot afford the boarding fees. It will give them more safety and privacy, and will enable them to use the library in the Orphan Care Centre (built by NWT) so that homework could be done with electric light. Sufficient funds to make a start have been transferred, and of course the local community have already moulded the bricks. It would be great if we could have the building ready for the start of the next school year in September.
To help make this possible, please support our Annual Garden Party on June 15th.
As usual, it will be held at 1 Apple Tree Walk, Clymping, BN17 5QN.
Drop in any time from 2pm and enjoy tea and cakes, a chance to win the famous Malawi Gin in our raffle, the Bring and Buy stall and have a flutter on the tombola.
Plus, of course, an update on all our projects in Malawi.
Free pick ups are available from Ford station on request.
