2016 Trip: The Amani Clinic

The Kahama District Hospital has a children's Care and Treatment Clinic that provides treatment services and counselling. In 2009 Dr Subi provided a clubhouse and some funding to set up a much-need social support group and asked if we would add our support. The group quickly grew from under 20 children to over 200! We ordered chairs, tables and shelves, which were made locally.  As well as many other donations, we have supplied a VHS player, TV screen & videos  to while away some of the hours of waiting-time and to help improve their English. We also set up and partially fund a food program. 

Brenda always arranges a party on each visit, with food for the children and their siblings and caregivers. 

Do contact me if you would like to donate to the Amani clinic or make a regular donation towards the food. 

You can donate on line or at the Summerland Credit Union or mail to The One Person Project 10108 Julia Street, Summerland, V0H 1Z5 

Asante Sana!
Thank you!

2016 Trip: Muvuma Orphanage

Brenda and some of the 30 Muvuma children

One Person provided over 95% of the funds to build the orphanage. We are still raising money to finish the interior so that we can add 20 more vulnerable children. All funds go through our agent Emmanuel, who monitors the process each step of the way. 

Marco, who is sponsored by Naomi and family.
The orphanage also shelters children with albinism.  There is a large albino population in the Kahama area who suffer from the stigma and prejudices of being different but more alarmingly, in Tanzania (as in many developing countries) there is a ‘trade’ in albino limbs as they are believed to have magical properties. 

There are also two children with disabilities. This is Elisha who is sponsored by Mary. 

Brenda and Nicole made appointments for the children with medical needs. 

Preparing the land and planting donated vegetable seeds. 

The children love it when Brenda and the volunteer teams visit!

The children loved their soccer shirts and soccer balls! 

We ensure that the girls receive shirts too as they play netball
