February :    Thankfully, the year began well with reports of good rains in the area breaking the drought at last.  The crops were plentiful and we haven’t had to supply maize at all.  

June:  Work on the Kindergarten last year had to be delayed because our builder man had a terrible accident.  Thankfully, he has now fully recovered and has recently completed the replacement of the glass windows with wrought iron.  See how much stronger they are . . . and safer too – broken glass was a big problem.  These are the photos I have received:

August  :  

I am pleased to report that the School Trip this year is definitely on!  The National Parks are open and the Government has confirmed that the children will be allowed to visit Mikumi National Park again this year though some rules are still in place due to the Covid-19 virus.  The trip is being arranged for the weekend of 10th September 2021.  There has been no increase in the fees this year so the cost per child remains the same at £50. This covers absolutely everything for the two-day trip including all transport, accommodation, meals and all National Park fees.   The children are very excited.  If you would like to sponsor a child you can do so by clicking this link : Donate
