One of our main objectives at Mama Kevina Hope Centre for Children with Disabilities is being economically autonomous. This is why we have some IGA Projects that allow us to improve the quality life of the children through having some little incomes.
One of the first project that we started it was a farm. We have some animals: in this case pigs. We started a small project of piggery with a few pigs. We reproduce them and we sell it at the market.
This is a good way for having some incomes and also food for our children. We give to them a balance diet in order to grow healthily and strong.
We always say that despite the needs of the centre we have to give thanks every day! We are really lucky because we have really good people close to us who are trying to help our children as much as possible.
One of the big needs and one of the most important is the food. We are trying to be self-supply but it isn’t easy when you are feeding more than 30 children and you want to give to them the best.
Two Saturdays ago we had a really special visitor: Idd. R. Mkolamasa (Branch Manager of Nguvu Ngano – Cereals and other products board of Tanzania). They have opened a new branch in Same and they didn’t want to lost the opportunity to visit our children. They really enjoyed the time with our children and they brought more than 200 kilograms of food. We are really thankful to them, because they have understood our needs and they have supported us! So we want to say a big THANKS for them!
Last month of June we have been able to reactivate the therapeutic weeks thanks to our friends of Farfalle Di Luce. They have helped us with the equipment required from the government. Therefore we could start again taking all the preventions needed.
During this month we have had 15 children from different villages of our region. Since 10 months until 10 years old. Most of this children have cerebral palsy and problems for walking. We have provided to their parents the tools and the formation for continue treating them at home. Some of them will be back for the next session. And we will follow each case, we love seeing how they are progressing thanks to the therapy!
Now we are waiting for the next therapeutic weeks. Thanks for reading and for your support! If you have any question, don’t hesitate to ask us!
