The days of Tareto Maa

In August we had some visitors and some events at Tareto Maa and this was a cause to celebrate. Firstly, Gladys and Markus our directors came to the centre with some visitors. Lawrence and Astrid from BNI Germany and along with Caroline ( from America) came to make a film about Tareto Maa. This is a very exciting development and the film will be ready to be shown by Christmas.taretomaa-2016_gg-report-3

We also had a party to celebrate the girls’ school successes and a farewell party for those transferring to high school and those who had completed college. The party was colourful and very successful, and we were entertained by the girls and the community at large with photos and videos taken by our guests. It was a great day for everybody and the girls and staff really appreciated the party that was prepared by our visitors.There were also presents for the girls that were brought with them. We wish to thank them very much for all these things.

On the same day, we had a fundraising event to help start raising funds for the building of a new girl’s dormitory which is full to capacity.

The school opened for the start of the new term on the 29th August and the teachers and pupils were very excited and full of joy in receiving presents from our visitors; of books, crayons, balls and other playing equipment. Our guests had to leave the next day (30h August) and this caused mixed emotions. The children were so happy with the occasion,the gifts that had been bought,of their school opening again but sad to see the visitors, who had been made most welcome, return to their homes.

There is one challenge which is affecting the school and that is access to clean water because of a drought which has lasted two months. This has had a terrible effect on the vegetables grown, including maize and beans which are available some miles away but there the prices are higher. Finally, we thanked God for some rain which helped to minimize the dust. We need your support to help keep feeding our girls within this present time, as the climate poses continued challenges with growing crops and access to fresh vegetables and food.

We thank all our supporters in advance for  your continued help and donations for everyone both girls and care staff at Tareto Maa.
