We funded a new roof for the sisters’ house at Mtandi. In July 2016 we visited the site with Bishop James and found building work well underway.
A project which TDT (Tanzanian Development Trust) Pays 40% and a European Charity pays 60%. TDT had run out of money so African Palms paid £3100.00 to continue the project. This is one of the villages where Palm crosses are made.
Funding was provided to try and complete a water pipeline project which had stalled a year earlier. The aim of the project is to provide the 1508 Misechela villagers and other nearby villages with clean and safe water.
Masasi primary school has about 1000 pupils, of these 70 are in the special needs section, many are albinos with sight problems. African Palms funded the construction of a new toilet block, and a further grant of £2216.00 was given for equipment. In July 2016 we visited the school and found the toilet block completed but not yet in use.
