December 2017 to March 2018 Report

MAH DI’S ORPHANAGE - KUMBA

REPORT ON THE ACTIVITIES THAT TOOK PLACE IN THE ORPHANAGE FROM  DECEMBER 2017 TO MARCH 2018

 

Dear Donors,

We want to thank you so very much because during this period you made our environment different by creating joy and peace in the hearts of the children. The activities that took place are:

WORKSHOPS

The senior children, who are attending the Technical College, did a workshop training on building and construction for the little boys and girls in our primary school. They taught them how to use cement for plastering on construction brick walls. It was so interesting to see how the children demonstrated on an uncompleted building at the Centre. (Photo attached)

We also did workshop training on the preparation of yogurt using powder milk. They did it and shared among themselves. They were very happy and loved preparing it all the time. My intention is that they can do in the future to earn income for themselves.

After the workshop they have been doing their own yogurt in the house, one day I sold it and bought some children's sandals with the profits, other times the children eat it as a snack.

CHRISTMAS PARTY/NEW YEAR

The children a day before the party assigned themselves to tasks like cooking, cleaning, shopping, etc. they did the shopping and preparation themselves.

On the day of Christmas, they served their visitors with chin-chin [local pastry], popcorn, drinks, and amongst their songs was the Christmas carol. (Photo attached)

VISIT

During this period they were also allowed to visit the Kumba City Council Amusement Park and Azi Children Foundation in our community. (Photo attached)

WORK SCHEDULE

The children are allowed to draw up the activity rosters themselves. They do this in a meeting organized by the senior children. The roster is done in rotating manner. (Photo of the meeting attached)

Amongst the children, Bridget loves babies. I asked her to be with our new baby all the time. She is very neat, loving and caring, she has a passion for babies, she likes to bath and feeds them. She loves children in general, she likes also cooking and teaching the little children and helps out in the nursery school.

FARMING

We do the following sustainable activities with your support;

Piggery, Poultry, Fishery and Tomato cultivation,

To realize the above project the management and children join hands manually to do the cultivation. (Photo of Charles in the farm attached)

SERVICES RENDERED TO THE COMMUNITY

The children are very helpful to this community in the following ways:

-During the dry season, there is a water crisis so some of the people in the community fetch water from the center’s borehole.

-Some children in the community are coming to the school in the orphanage nursery and primary schools. (1st Photo attached)

-We give helping hands to some underprivileged people in the community by providing them with some foodstuffs and clothes. (Photo attached)

-The center sometimes assists the community in clean up campaigns.

SERVICES RENDERED BY THE COMMUNITY

They are:

-Fetching of firewood

HEALTH

The Preventive Health District Unit did a lot concerning the children health. Consultation with the children is free and some prescribed drugs are provided by these mobile-health services.

 WHERE DO THESE CHILDREN COME FROM?

The children come within and out of the community.  They are placed in the center by the Social Center of the Ministry of Social Affairs after carrying out social inquiries about them.

WHERE DO THEY GO TO

-Some of these children are relocated to their family

-Some of them after graduation from school pick up jobs in and out of the community

-Some do vocational training and after the training become self-employed

-Some have furthered their studies and even gone abroad
