The Kids Check Out Their New Home!

Our amazing Agent, Emmanuel, took the 18 children and youth to see their new home! It isn't complete but we hope to have the children in there before Christmas. With your help we will continue to fund-raise and finish the orphanage in the new year, at which time the Muvuma ladies will bring 30 or more vulnerable children in to the family! 

The Muvuma Orphanage is a separate, locally-run NGO but we have added our support. It took 2 years for the Muvuma ladies to raise enough funds to build the first two-feet of the structure. The Muvuma Committee is in complete control of the orphanage and how it is run but we maintain control of the funds we donate. We send the funds to our agent, Emmanuel, who pays the materials and labour bills directly.  

We know how hard our small team here in Canada works to raise funds and awareness, and we greatly admire the dedication of the Muvuma ladies who continue to raise funds and care for the orphans on a daily basis.

For more information, to volunteer or to make a donation contact me , mail to The One Person Project, 10108 Julia Street, Summerland, B.C. V0H 1Z5  donate on-line or make a payment into our account at the Summerland Credit Union (Summerland, British Columbia).
