Dear Supporters,

It’s now 5 months that we have been using our Toyota Quantum to carry the underprivileged children from the village to the Bush School. We can’t tell you how much difference it makes in term of safety to have such a car to carry our little students. When fetching the children at the village they are all waving at us when they see the Daktari car passing through the village. They know we care for their safety and all look forward to take a ride which will bring them to Daktari experience.

This week of education is the last week of the year for Daktari to welcome children and it will be time for the car to go for its first service. The car is taken care of like a precious stone as we wouldn’t be able to operate without it.

The monthly repayment for the vehicle is still very heavy and it will cost around $ 474 per month for the next five years. We need to bring this repayment down to become sustainable. Your contribution toward the heavy instalment is crucial for us as the loan was taken as an emergency solution.

We thank you for your support in continuing helping us to cover the cost of the purchase of this vital tool. The car to pick up and drop off children is definitely a resource we can’t do without.

Let us know what you think of our car and give us your advices.

We wish you a Happy Christmas and look forward to hear from you.

Ian and Michele
