It really is a headache how to find the money to pay for the education that these children are getting….and of course we want to do more as our goal is to lift them out of poverty. It costs 5% of what the UK Government spend on a child - or the cost of private/public [...]

Storytelling Competition – and the results of our cookery competition

JK Rowling has sold 500,000,000 Harry Potter books world-wide and is worth $1billion US. Seems a good reason to encourage young people to tell stories and to tell them well.

Nearly there with the new kindergarten school in Hangdewa!

Day by day we inch closer to the opening of the new school in Hangdewa for 60 4-6 year olds, and a crèche for teachers’ babies and toddlers. It now has flooring and tables and, maybe this week, the playground will get smoothed over. We need to find money for a fence as this is [...]
