Look what we found in Timbwani, a Volvo Tractor! It may not be able to move very far but the engine still works, so last week our Agriculture students managed to see the reality of what they had been taught in class by Albertina and Jim (seconded from the Landrover!) Thanks Mtavi for finding such a gem.

That’s the antique so what about the new? Many of you know Mwinyi, well for a couple of weeks now he’s been unable to get to school as his trike, which he’d just about grown out of, was now completely broken, beyond repair. Thanks to Footsteps International we were able to buy him a new machine. There was A LOT of excitement in the school, I think the rest of the children were as happy as Mwinyi. It’s amazing how £110 can change someone’s life!

Good news about the half way house – today the electricity was connected so we can now pump water to test the toilets & showers, we will keep you in suspense for photos of our progress until next week!

Thanks Xx Glyn & Janey
