With the Hilux fully loaded with office furniture, including a lockable cupboard, stationery, maths workbooks and grey jerseys, we set off to Muumba school.
Perhaps you recall that the toddler group at Hope and Market Church in Merthyr Tydfil raised £100 for outdoor play equipment at the school? Well, Mr Bbilika and his brother had just completed cementing, welding and painting the swings. They are all ready for the new term.
Mr Bibilika has promised that he will send pictures of the children on the swings and also the children wearing jerseys and maybe the plastic rain capes at the start of the rainy season.
Mr Maninga who works at the local teacher training college, came to say hello. He said that there is a very good relationship between the school and college and he said that the college uses Muumba school as an ‘example’ school and that many college students are placed in the school.
The next term promises to be an exciting and rewarding term for children and staff. And, of course, much of that is down to you, our thoughtful and generous supporters.
