The Igoda Children's Village continues to try to find ways to become self-sustained this week. We had some locally generated income produced through sales from our chicken project.
The project also helps teach the children here the skills that may help them when they one day return to the village. Though funding is still required through private donations to support the running costs such as food and needs for the Children's Village, the leaders continue to look for ways to generate local income so as to lessen the load carried by donations.
Since mid-2008 the bulk of running costs have been funded by donations from Canada through our partners in African Children's Book Box Society. We are forever grateful by the hard work, dedication, and commitment that this volunteer charity has shown to the people of Mufindi!
