2018 Newsletter

Dear Friends of Makeni,

Here is an update from MEC on activities in the last year.   We hear about the children at St Nicholas Child Care Facility, some of whom are preparing for their end of year of exams.

In July there was a youth conference held in Mwembeshi, including some children from St Nicholas.image007

A confirmation service at The Church of the Good Shepherd Makeni saw children from St Nicholas confirmed: Pexilida Hanyimba, Basil Tembo, Anna Tembo and Bupe Bwalya.

The Girls’ Brigade took part in a competition that included Bible quizzes, poems and handicrafts, as well as more physical contests such as relay races.  The Church of the Good Shepherd won a first prize trophy!


image002Peace Club held an event at the centre in October attended by 520 pupils and teachers from around Lusaka.

Rains arrived, though the farmers await a good downpour to soften their fields.  The children at the centre have also been keeping a vegetable patch.

The staff and children at the centre wish all of our image004supporters a very happy Christmas and rich blessings in the new year!

The 2018 newsletter is available here.
