Today we had a grand ceremony for the 2009 graduates of the Orphans Foundation Fund Street Children Project funded by CORDAID. The Arusha Regional Commissioner, Isidori Leka Shirima, was there to hand out the tools to those who had studied Automotive mechanics as well as the sewing machines to the graduates of the the tailoring course.
With the successful completion of the first year of the Orphans Foundation Fund / CORDAID Street Children Project we have set out with the new recruitment for this year. After the long and careful process of meeting with the children on the streets and doing interviews, we have narrowed down those who are interested in participating in the life changing program. Today we met with a large group to discuss the first stage of moving into the dormitories at Chiswea this coming week. The street children are hopeful and eager to begin the work of transforming their lives into mature responsible adults. The talk has reached the streets that Orphans Foundation Fund / CORDAID have a program, that with effort, training, and hard work leads to a future of hope.
We are very pleased to have the 2009 Annual Financial Report completed by Karishoi Business Advisory Services, which is a firm of certified public accounts here in Arusha, Tanzania. Click here to view the document: Orphans Foundation Fund 2009 Annual Report
