More progress at Hope Centre!

Added to the progress in contstuction of house number 4, some simple ideas have been turned into income generating projects at the Hope Centre in Burundi.

Below house number 4 moves ahead towards completion.

The grounds around the homes have been turned into productive gardens, producing wonderful vegetables for the children to eat and some extra for sale to generate some extra income for the project.

Marrows and courgettes are harvested for consumption by the family and for sale.
Here the children harvest some cabbages and there are many more for consumption and for sale behind them.

Sustainability built in:

Projects aim for long term sustainability:

Now that the Hope Centre kids are coming back together at the Centre after having been looked after by others during the time the building work was going on we can begin to put in place some projects which will focus on long term sustainability. Recent donations of a few hundred pounds have made it possible to begin these projects.
  • Goat project
  • Cow project
  • Chicken project
  • Agricultural project
