3rd March 2018:
We support 258 girls in Secondary school.
As a result of seriously overcrowded classrooms (up to and over 100 sometimes), poor buildings, inadequately trained and paid teachers and much more, we decided 4 years ago to collect these girls from far distant places each weekend to hold classes with excellent teachers that we have selected and employ.
Here we provide a meal at the end of classes comprising Nsima (maize flour, the staple) Soya pieces and a mix of cabbage, tomato, onion.
This is their meal of the day and maybe for some their only meal of the weekend.
It’s a hard life, but these girls really want to learn.
