Nearly 80 nursery school children in local Katumbi village here on the eastern shore of lake Tanganyika will grow strong and be able to concentrate better in class thanks to the very generous donation of $1000 from Nigel Palmer of Stearn Electric.
The money is now providing a meal a day of Uji for these lucky children. Uji is a local form of porridge made from maize meal, sugar and water. $1000 will provide the children with this meal for a whole year!
Kerrie just returned from the school this morning having visited the kids and asking them how much they enjoyed this supplement to their day. Check the pictures to see how happy they are to be receiving this regular meal.
