"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."

Hi there all, for those of you in the Northern Hemisphere hopefully spring is starting to kick in, for the rest of us in the South it is winter that is arriving…….

In Arusha it has been very, very wet. This has created quite a few difficulties for some children getting to and from school, with roads washed out and impassable, as well as being extremely muddy.

Many children have had coughs and colds, as their home environments are often not waterproof. However the children in the boarding facilities have been dry and able to continue their studies uninterrupted.

ACE is pleased to announce that Blandina is now in a situation to start implementing the 'Pastoral Care' programme that is so crucial to the children’s development.

This involves her spending a morning with the children outside of school time, (usually a Saturday) where they talk about their goals and aspirations, learn about caring for each other, confide in Blandina any issues they may be having, and take the opportunity to also write to their sponsor. (Which is scanned and emailed to you.)

Over the next few months we hope to get letters from all children, to all sponsors.

After a break the children are all now back at school for the second semester, see attached some photos of them returning to class.

Thank you for your commitment to the children, and we look forward to your continued support.

Kind Regards,
Mary and Vinnie Duncan
