The youth of today will help the elderly tomorrow!
Happy New Year to you all! 2018 was a great year and we look forward to 2019 with relish, as do all our elderly members of the communities as we are now starting to see the fruits of our labours from the education projects with the children from when we started now all grown up with jobs and providing extra income for the family. This is what we hoped for when we started back in 2002. We cannot rest on our laurels, there is still so much more to do though by making this sustainable with the youth of today it is hoped that for generations to come the elderly will be cared for by the young.
