This week we had a special visitor to Orphans Foundation Fund, Dr. Diane O’Rourke. Dr. O’Rouke is a teacher at Victoria University in Wellington New Zealand. She heard of the good work that Orphans Foundation Fund was doing in Tanzania and wanted to see how she too could get involved. We visited Jane’s Orphans Center, the O.F.F./CORDAID Arusha Street Children Project, and the Lengast Village projects that we are running. Dr. O’Rouke contributed to the house rent for Violet (Above on the right) and several other of the graduates of the O.F.F./CORDAID Arusha Street Children Project to help them get well established. She is very pleased with our work and will surely continue to be a great partner.
Several years ago USAID installed a water system for Lengast Masai Village, although it has been helping the people, the system now isn’t producing enough water for the community. A combined task force was formed to address the problems, lead by Lt. Col James B Williams of the United States Air Force. Orphans Foundation Fund along with the members of the task force and community leaders went to the bore hole, water tanks, pipelines and distribution points in and around Lengast to see how the system may be improved to yield more water to sustain the village. The continued support of donors and development groups is much appreciated by Lengast Village.
