With great sadness we say goodbye to Estelle and Olivier Laville (Estelle is English and Olivier is French), a couple who volunteered from December 2011-March 18, 2012. During their mission stay Estelle focused on teaching at the school and caring for the children at home and recruiting more Maasai kids to attend school. Estelle knows the Maasai language and could communicate with the local people who respected her. Her husband Olivier was busy with construction, agriculture and started a small poultry industry. In the photo is the chicken coup that Olivier built with 50 chickens which we hope will lay eggs for the children and to generate income. Thank you Estelle and Olivier for your sacrifice and the difference you made in the lives of our children. You will be missed!
France Motumbo, President of Foundation for Africa in Hungary/our partners in Congo and Tanzania, is back in Tanzania with the third “humanitarian tourism” group from Hungary in the last few months. Each trip, tourists spend one to two weeks to do volunteer work at our school in Namanga. The tourists on this trip donated new shoes (photos) for each child and school supplies. They also raised funds to build the roof for the second building at the school (photo). Thank you Hungarian volunteers for your hard work and care for our Maasai children.
