In 2009 our assistants founded a Self-Help-Group to support the children in their village to protect them from becoming homeless. The members of the group themselves lived in poverty but want to try the best to give the children a better future. Firstly, they started as volunteers, however, now we can pay a salary of 85 Euro per month to each of them. We also pay the school fee’s for their own children at school and they are getting free health care in the hospital.
The on-site assistant team is essential for our orphanage and school to work. They manage and conduct the daily tasks throughout the orphanage and school. Cooperation within the different cultures is not always simple but is possible with mutual respect and dialogue between all.
Thanks to modern technology the communication between the assocation and the orphanage is fast and easy by mobile phone (Whatsapp) or by internet (e-mail / scanned documents).
The home is managed by our dedicated director Madam Mwanaisha. She is the mother of two children and has attended a management course to perform her work professionally.
Deputy director is Mr. Nyambu, who has a wife and three children. He takes care of our farm and organization in general.
Our school’s headmaster is Madam Mercy. After four years of holiday schooling, she now has an official diploma as a teacher and teaching is her passion.
She is our cook and takes care of all children day and night. She lives in our home with two of her own children and her cheerfulness is contagious.
