God has been good to us this year! We have been able to finish the 1st school-building, almost complete the second dormitory, do most of the fencing and 24 more children have been identified for the new school-year. Thank you God, thank you donors!

1st Oct, 2011 – week39


The 2nd California Team this year has come and they have taken charge of the painting job of the face of the school.It surely makes a difference when you come in the gate and see the school.
Well done Patti, Nate, John & Ashly!

Meanwhile Philip, one of our long serving workers has been puncturing the rocky ground with the jackhammer and he is preparing for the next Primary-School-Block. We are still praying for donors…

In the meantime we are working on the finishing of Dorm2 and building a backwall behind the dorms of the boys & Girls so they can hang their clothes to dry, without the neighbours ‘borrowing’ them
23th July, 2011 week29


The workers are working on the leveling and compacting of the BasketBall court.
It proves to be more of a challenge than we had anticipated…

Geert & Charissa Holwerda have come for some weeks from Holland to help with the work in the children’s village. Geert is trying to connect the light, perhaps good he is a teacher trainer now…good that we had some spare fuses. Geert & Charissa came on the right time to help with the preparing of the group-guest-house. It has become a cozy place with a nice view on the sports fields.


The other boys had a chance to have some time with the children to play the 1st volleyball game on the new field.
