Just watch this… please

Follow this link anfd watch the video:

Today we eventually met with Edu who runs the Community Light Programme in Shanzu. He told us a bit about the programme, about the work that they do, the challenges they face, and he showed us this video.

I could say more, but Mitchell Besser says it better. Please watch the video – this is what CLP is trying to do locally.

I’m sure you’ll hear more of CLP in coming days.



Visiting the Family

We had a quiet morning at home, during which Shariff found the puppies of one of the dogs, and moved them close to the house.(Meld then bought dog food for the mum – an expensive luxury!)


Late morning we went next door to visit the school where Meld will help, and met the headteacher Mr Muli.



After an exciting trip to Tusky’s for food shopping and lunch with Joe, we visited Joe’s brother Samuel’s house in Shanzu. Joe’s niece Mary holds great-niece Gloria (they are 1st cousins once removed – the two brothers, their children and grandchildren were all around!)


Selina Bahati, the wife of another brother (Martin) makes bags to sell. Maggy loved the change to model them!

The laptop bag is awesome (this is mine!) modelled by Jacob. (About £7 each)

If you fancy a bag, place your orders!

Walking back to the house, the sun hd set and the stars were emerging.


At 13 months, Gloria wants to be a photographer!
