March 2014 Update

Time for Exuberant Entertainment!
Time for Exuberant Entertainment!

The hard work by the teachers and students over the years has been rewarded with good results in the grade 9 examinations. 19 students passed the exams and were accepted at local secondary schools – more than half of the grade 9 students. Considering the difficulties faced by the children and the limited resources at the school, this is a remarkable achievement. Each year the results have been improving. With the help of our supporters the school is making a huge difference to these children and with your further support even greater things will be achieved.

Mrs. Sianga wants to continue to help to these children so they can complete their education and have a better chance to provide properly for themselves and their families. One former student, Mawini, achieved the top marks at the local Secondary High School and is currently applying to university where she hopes to study medicine and eventually become a doctor. We will follow her progress and back Mrs. Sianga in her quest to change the lives of these children. 

The past few months have been very difficult for the families in and around Monze. The harvest last year was very poor resulting in high food prices. People have told me that there has been a lot of hunger in the area. The small lunches that the school has been able to provide have therefore taken on even more significance. In addition the garden has produced vegetables to support the children's diet. Mr Olden Hamabibi (headteacher) writes “The garden has improved the lives of the orphans”.

I will have the pleasure of visiting Monze again within two weeks and will stay in Monze until June. I will talk to the students and teachers and hope to bring more stories demonstrating how lives are being changed. I look forward to seeing the smiling faces and being entertained by the talented students. There is so much potential within these children, we must do our best to ensure that it is realised.
