The Orphans Foundation Fund staff spent today checking how the former street children are doing with their new skills. We went to all of the vocational training locations and found that the students were learning quickly and doing a great job preparing for their soon employment. Even several of their supervisors said that when they are finished with training they have a job waiting for them! By facing life with responsibility and empowerment these young adults will meet the challenges that life throws at them head on with determination.

Wednesday July 1st the pilot bore hole of 112 meters was completed at the Kikatiti farm of Orphans Foundation Fund. The preliminary study estimates that the well will yield over 2000 liters per hour of water. This water will be plenty to irrigate the farm, sustain the work of OFF and in turn help many more orphaned and vulnerable children in Tanzania. We’d like to thank Dr. Lace, Senator Winters, and the many donors who helped to make this possible.

Chiswea Street Children

Chiswea Street Children Program Chiswea Street Children Program Chiswea Street Children Program

With great energy and eagerness the children at the Chiswea Street Children’s Center performed many types of dances, songs, dramatic plays, stunts, and talented skills for Catherine Mulvale and her group visiting from Canada. Some of the plays were depicting how life was living on the street with drugs, alcohol, fights, and extreme poverty. Then other plays showed how life changed when they enrolled in the Orphans Foundation Fund/Chiswea Street Children Project to get off the street, get clean from drugs and alcohol, and study for the future! With continued drive and hard work these children will make for themselves lives worth living.

Last month Orphans Foundation Fund, along with the support of many generous donors, began the work of drilling two wells in Lengast Masai village. Two surveys were conducted using two separate methods and both indicated the presence of water. Unfortunately the drilling rig reached it’s maximum depth before water was found. We still have great hopes that soon when additional funds are raised we may continue to drill deeper and hit fountains of life giving water.
