Some of our recent volunteers enjoyed a daily game of football with the Buguruni football team and were simply amazed at their tackling and dribbling skills. One even commented that British football managers should be persuaded to go on a scouting trip to Dar es Salaam. Come on Buguruni!!!!
The children love dressing up and thoroughly enjoyed this photo session with Christmassy tinsel and hats. We just thought this was such a great photo of them having fun. The children at Buguruni School are 50/50 Muslim and Christian but all celebrate each others holy days and show incredible understanding and respect for their faiths.
It is a wonderful thing to see our sound proofed booth being used on a daily basis by the school audiologist Mr Shibanda and all the wonderful audiologists who travel out from Addenbrookes Hospital in Cambridge. We are unbelievable fortunate to have their support and skills.
We were absolutely jubilant when, in November 2014 the long awaited for sound proofed booth was released by Customs at the Port of Dar es Salaam. This has taken a mammoth effort, mainly by Judith, to get all the necessary paperwork approved. At last the truck rolled into the Buguruni school grounds and the men arrived to unpackage and erect the booth. We are very excited, as is Mr Shibanda our audiologist who will now be able to test children's hearing without the background noise of planes overhead and traffic in the road outside. We will post photos as soon as the booth is up and running.
The Buguruni Breakfast Club launched early in January 2014 and what a difference it has made! Thanks to our fantastic supporters and the Buguruni Breakfast Club Appeal we have been able to give all the children a healthy, filling breakfast every single morning of the year. For children who are already undernourished this has seen a marked improvement in the energy elves and alertness in class. The teachers are happy - the children are happy. They love their porridge on weekday mornings and their eggs and bread at weekends. Surprisingly they are less keen on fruit but they know it gives them important extra vitamins. We have decided we can't just let the Buguruni Breakfast Club stop and so it is going to continue as our 2015 Appeal. Please contact Susan and she will email or post the details. email@example.com Alternatively you can click on the following links for the Information page of our Appeal leaflet or the Form which you can print off and sent back to us. Many thanks and here they are :- TanzanearAppealFrontpdf and TanzanearAppeal2015
We have new books! The kids were really happy with their new books.
The Buguruni Breakfast Club Appeal 2014 is still going strong. We have managed to secure donations to cover every single day in 2014 and to all our supporters we say a massive "Thank you!" As you will see from elsewhere on the website the Breakfast Club has made a huge difference to the healthy and well being of the children, capsule so much so we are going to continue it in 2015 with our Tanzanear Appeal 2015. If you can help please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find our 2015 Appeal leaflet and the Form to print out and fill in if you follow the following two links.
