Elizabeth Mungeli Shimbuumburu presented us the project on the extension of the asylum which currently manages in a hot African afternoon at Katutura, the township of Windhoek. She takes care of 48 kids, and 6 of them are orphans who live with her. She’s a teacher and wants to ensure them that minimum of preparation that will ensure them to enter the school without dramas. The name of ‘her’ asylum is significant: Grow Together Kindergarten. She asked Scintille to support her project: to buy a small plot and build a new structure which will host 100 kids and at least 3 teachers. We trusted in her and we made the first donation. Half of the amount will be used for financing the project and the other half to buy stuff for cooking bread inside the asylum. They’ll produce bread not only for the kids, but for selling it as well, so creating a self-financing project.
For Elizabeth a challenge that starts, for Scintille a new initiative in addition to those already in progress…..
