The Orphans Foundation Fund computers classes are now in full session! All of the kids in the Street Children project are the first to benefit from the computers and instruction of the new teacher at Orphans Foundation Fund. Soon we will open up classes to the general public to be both an educational service to the community and bring in much needed funds to continue the work of helping orphans and vulnerable children in Tanzania. Many thanks to Dr. James Lace, Senator Jackie Winters, and the many others who contributed to make this school possible.
On Wednesday we had the grand opening of the new Computer Teaching Center that supports orphans and vulnerable children through IT classes as well as bringing in donations for Orphans Foundation Fund to continue the many projects throughout the country in development and relief efforts for kids. We moved from the new center, which is located at the main O.F.F. office complex, to the O.F.F. Njiro plot which will become the permanent training facility for the organization. The ceremonial tree planting signified the new growth and progress of Orphans Foundation Fund. If you would like to get involved and help make this plan a reality please contact us!
This past Friday Orphans Foundation Fund presented a new HP computer to Mt. Meru Hospital as part of the program to further empower their medical technology. The new computer will allow the doctors in the hospital to access the latest information regarding the treatments for various diseases, information to advice patients on nutritional wellness to prevent illness, and a quick way in which to consult other physicians abroad while working collaboratively.
