Last week 21 young adults graduated from the Orphans Foundation Fund cooking course funded by CordAid. At the ceremony many of last terms students were awarded a certificate during the ceremony at Help to self Help vocational center. An additional 29 young adults studied tailoring and mechanics. They will graduate in January of next year.
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.
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.
