The local management is fighting hard to make the project largely self-sufficient.
They are producing 150 chickens each month to provide a regular income flow. The piggery is growing rapidly. Until the pigs are ready for sale this presents a financial challenge, but soon the piggery should make a significant contribution to the income at the centre. Some maize and sunflower seeds were planted at the end of last year. Fortunately the rain this season has been good – so a reasonable harvest is expected this year.
However the main objective of the project is to enable teenagers to have a better future. A new programme has been started to improve literacy in the community. 22 young people are benefitting from this new initiative.
The tailoring course has been extended to include embroidery and knitting. Some of the former students will be engaged in knitting school jumpers.
The project still has many challenges. The management would like to provide more computer training, but more funds are needed to buy equipment.
It is good to see new initiatives taken by our partners at Kaliyangile.
Your continued support is very much appreciated, Thank You.
