Thank you & Merry X Mas

Greetings to all Ngoma Aid Foundaton Donors and well wishers. I would like to extend my sincere gratitude to all our donors for the wonderful support they extend to us.

The girls are all okay enjoying their December (Christmas) break away from school activities since the school term closed on 2nd December 2010.

Josephine completed her senior six ( Advanced Level) this December and with God's help and hard work, she will be joining University come August 2010. She is one of our oldest beneficiaries and we are happy she has come this far.

Lispar completed her O level certificate and if she gets good grades, she could enroll for Advanced level or enroll for a teaching or nursing course in one of the institutions in the country.

Hanifa will be joining Senior three next year. It is amazing how time flies. We picked her on after she had failed to make it to secondary school due to family problems, she has now matured into a young respectable lady whose future seems a lot brighter than before. We owe this to our donors and are truly grateful for your support.

Jane and Elizabeth completed primary school and will join secondary school come February 2011. They are currently at the house with the maid and the rest of the children.

Krshna and Natasha did perform well too. These two are in lower primary. Natasha is spending her holidays with the surviving members of her family and will be back to the house when the next school term begins. Krshna, is also away to another District to spend the holiday with her elderly and sickly 93year old great grandmother who was taking care of her before we brought her to the house. The great grand mother was happy to see her and will enjoy every moment with her this holiday. The elderly woman was her caretaker before we picked her on. Krshna is a very prayerful girl and she has been leading the house in prayer for the last several months.

Hanifa will also be spending the holiday with her surviving family and will be back to the house when the school term begins in February 2010.

Shamimu will enroll for a course next year having stayed home for the bigger part of 2010. She was admitted for a counseling and guidance certificate course this year but could not go due to financial constraints. she has patiently waited and we are ready to equip her with a skill before we let her out into the world.

Our bills have been drastically reduced from what it was like sometime in June/July 2010. The maids health has also been a lot stable in the last several month and yes we are still pushing on.

We are anxiously looking forward to the New year 2011 although it looks like it will be a challenging one. We are planning on taking on some more vulnerable younger girls. We are also planning on equipping the older girls with some skills so that they can be better prepared for life on their own. We continue to request for your support.

I wish you all a Merry X-mas and a Happy New Year from Ngoma Aid Foundation
