Beulah Heights School Maize crop harvested

The really good news this month is that the Maize planted last year at Beulah Heights has been harvested and some of the seed set aside for the next planting.

Aid2 Africa has taken over management of the Revival Times Ministry web site to help solve problems of access, cost  and availability. Revival Times Ministry is the parent body which instigated the building of the school at Beulah Heights under the leadership of Rev Zamani Sithole. We are pleased to be able to help. The website is www.revivaltimesintl.org.

 

New Links in Tanzania

A project in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro has come under the umbrella of Aid2Africa. Two young women spent time working on a community project in Nkwawangya run by another charity. When the project ended the charity moved on to the next site. Jennifer and Kat saw a need for another building which would improve the lives of the children and their community even further. Their aim is to build a canteen which can be used by the school children. It will provide shelter from the burning sun in summer and the cold and rain in winter. It will provide the community with another building which can be put to good use at other times.

We are proud to be able to offer these enterprising people the support of our organisation as they raise funds for their project. For more details visit the website.

 

 

After a successful year last year (April 2008-March 2009) we are looking forward to exciting new challenges this year. We hope to see the first volunteers visiting our Kenyan Centre and the tremendous benefits that will bring with it.

 

We are organising a range of fundraising events but really do need your support. If you could organise a fund raising event for us, perhaps just a coffee morning selling a few cakes it would help make a real difference to the orphans and vulnerable children we support.

 

Please contact us if you want any help or advice about raising funds for our work in Africa. Together we can make a real difference to the lives of children.

Moi’s Bridge in Kenya.

The Waymarks Education Centre We have been lucky enough to buy an acre of land very near to the existing site

The present rented site is 50 feet x 100 feet and with no room to expand. The classroom we built last year filled all the remaining available space.

The local Education Officer has voiced concern about the poor accommodation. This new land will enable the centre, with help from Aid2Africa, to relocate onto a much larger site with an option to buy an adjacent acre of land in the future.

This will be the base for our volunteer programme.

The Watchmen for Zimbabwe raised over £200 for the work of the charity when they met in Nuneaton. Thank you to John and Christina and all the Zimbabweans who attended the event
