Project Officer Kevin Curley has contacted us with the following two updates:
“I thought I would share with you some good news from two of our projects. Innocent, the teacher at Manyoni Secondary School who led the construction of the girls’ hostel, has been in touch to tell me that the number of girls sleeping in the hostel has grown from 12 to 42 since electricity was installed. The hostel has room for 48 girls.
Obadiah, the organiser of ANCO in Kasulu, has sent me photographs of the first three street boys he has helped to return home. He has used our small grant to buy clothes and mattresses for the boys and has given them money to begin petty trading.
Here are photos of some of the girls in the Manyoni hostel and of Jackson going home after 2 years living in the streets of Kasulu.
With our small grants we are changing lives for the better and giving young people new hope and opportunities. Well done everyone.”
