Hard Times - We need You more than ever before

Greetings from Ngoma Aid Foundation; I trust all our donors, friends and well wishers are fine. We at Ngoma Aid Foundation are fine although I have to admit and confess that we are struggling financially at the moment.

The Children completed the first term of the year in April, went home for holidays and are back to school for the second term of the year. We had a perfect start of the year given that we had all our outstanding bills in terms of house rent, school fees, school requirements, food,  and all necessities for the first term cleared up to end of April 2012.

The girls went back to school for the second term on the 7th of may 2012 but like I mentioned earlier, providing for second school term is still a big challenge. We have only managed to make some deposit on the fees for the two children in senior four who will be seating the national examinations in October 2012 so that they are not affected by being sent away from school. They spent a week home recently but are now at school after some deposit was made. I am sure the school is about to make fresh demands. The younger girls should have spent some days home due to non-fee payment but we negotiated with the school to give us some more time since we have always paid promptly over the years.

It is also becoming challenging providing all the daily meals for the younger girls who are not in boarding school at the moment. You will appreciate that Ngoma Aid Foundation’s activities sometimes benefit from the Executive Director’s meager earnings outside the organisation which have not been forthcoming for the last 11months. Like I stated in my previous report, I anticipated second term provisions to be a challenge and it indeed is a challenge.

Still struggling with keeping the girls in school, Kunihira Jane seems to be losing focus because she apparently missed exams, while at school and when all the fees was cleared for the term. Who said parenting is not a challenge? I am yet to discuss her issue with the school administration but I will share what the school thinks of her and what should be done when I meet the school authorities for an explanation. I have attached all the reports for last term to this report.

We will keep the candle burning, we are determined to continue moving mountains one at a time, we can only continue to achieve our goals with your support. Kindly bring the support on. Thank you Always
