2012 High Tea Fundraiser Update

The Mumba Day Care Centre women were the beneficiaries of the High Tea Fundraiser held on the 24th of March have decided to start rearing chickens with the money that was raised. Providing meat and eggs, this will add to the nutritional quality of the food we are able to provide for the children’s meal.

A lovely lady (a good friend) donated £100, two sisters who are acquaintances donated £ 15 and one young lady who shares our dream and passion, did not attend but instead donated £25.

Dear friends, £140 will start off the ladies with the purchase of chicks, feed, feeders etc.

They are making their own bricks, I (Hildah Mulenga) donated iron sheets and they will take turns in looking after the chickens.

Follow how your donation will be used here in our blog or on our facebook page.

Over the past few years there has been a lot of development on our centre land in Mpongwe, Zambia. We have a number of temporary buildings in place which are used as school rooms and places for the children to eat their free meal in the shade; however it is our mission to build a permanent School House and office which will be multi-purpose and for use by the whole community…

While building a school in Mpongwe is nowhere near as expensive as building a school in the UK, it nonetheless costs money – to pay for materials and the workmen to build it for us, and this is where we need your help… with this in mind we are holding a Fundraiser at a Zambian Event – please support us by coming along for a night of Zambian Culture…

All funds raised will go on phase one of building the School House
