Brenda (One Person President & Director) and Peter Smyth and Ron Ryde are heading out to East Africa on January 14th. Unfortunately it is the smallest volunteer group ever for the most demanding trip but they will be there for a few weeks and will have a team of local volunteers to unload the 12 meter shipping container.
The numerous donated resources in the shipping container include a high compression brick machine designed and built by Ron, Lawrence Slind and Bill Lauritzen. Ron's main role is to set up the brick machine and provide training to set up a brick business at the new Muvuma Orphanage.

UPDATE: The brick machine is not at the orphanage, it is not practical to run a business out of there at the moment. We have loaned the machine to two young men and Ron provided hands-on training.
