Day Care and Schooling

With now over 200 children, the Day Care Centre continues to grow. Not only is it a place to learn for the children but it currently employs 5 teachers with assistants, 2 cooks, 2 cleaners as well as a secretary. With your help we are currently sponsoring 45 children in Day Care and some of those we were sponsoring in Day Care have now progressed to main stream schooling. We will continue to fund these throughout their schooling.
It is amazing to see how some of the children have progressed. Weldi, a Downs boy who two years ago would only stare at the wall, is this year running with the pack and giving Mike a ‘thumbs up’ every time he sees him. Sister tells us that he is starting to read and progressing well. Britukan who hid under her sister’s skirt two years ago was this year leading the singing in one class.
We have 11 children at main stream school all sponsored by your funding. We are also sponsoring 4 students at university who are all due to finish this year. Prospects of employment are not good but they will have an advantage over others.
