Our new library which we began to build whilst i was there in August 2016 is now almost complete and we have been thrilled with the amount of books which are already beginning to pile up, soon to be placed upon the shelves of this new room of escapism for our children.
My father had always told me that you are able to travel the world from your armchair through books, this is still very much possible and for the books that have been brought to us from volunteers visiting we are thrilled with the selection of titles not only about travel but the old classics, nature and science, motivational, history and of course many amazing children’s stories. Ann enormous thank you to all who have brought books from your country to our children.
We were also thrilled to be able to build the library with a cement slab roof so that we will be able to in time add another classroom on the top, which will eventually be for our grade 8 class. Currently we are preparing for grade 6 as already our children in grade 5 have commenced studies for their next year. I am always so amazed that we began with only 30 children, now we have just on 300…. and even more next year!
As Christmas fast approaches, we are now hoping to organize a most wonderful day for our children, both in our Orphanage and school, if you can assist we would be as always thankful, or consider giving your children the gift of Sponsoring one of our children this year… there would be no grater gift.
We never walk alone in doing all that we do, if it was not for the support from you we could not do as much as we do, as is needed and as much as it changes the lives of others. Thank you.
