"Do not try to satisfy your vanity by teaching a great many things. Awaken people's curiosity. It is enough to open minds, do not overload them. Put there just a spark. If there is some good inflammable stuff, it will catch fire."
Hello again folks!
I hope everybody is settled in the New Year and looking forward to the coming months!
Latest news for February is all positive, all the kids are registered in their continuing or new schools, and have been back for a few weeks. Thank you all for your cooperation while we had our 2011 – 2012 transition. Blandina did an incredible job with getting all the children enrolled and ready for the new year.
Jesca, the young girl who we wrote about a few weeks ago is happily enrolled and attending Haradali English Medium as a boarding student, however we are still searching for a sponsor for her and her younger brothers. We have also just had 3 new sponsors sign up which is fantastic news!
The first term back at school is going well, with all the children ready to go and stocked up with all their schooling needs! Thank you all for your patience:)
All invoices have been sent out for 2012, let us know if you’ve got any questions regarding this year’s structure, we’re more than happy to help!
Vinnie and Mary are both extremely excited to be heading to Arusha for Vinnie’s first trip and Mary’s 3rd. It will be a good chance for all the kids, parents and teachers to meet Vinnie, as well as getting full updates and reports on all the kids.
We should have a bunch of new photos coming through soon, and hopefully in the next few months we will have fully set up our letter writing scheme between sponsors and their child/ren.
