Bangwe House of Hope
We just got back from a family holiday in Zimbabwe where we went to see friends and family. We had a wonderful time and it was encouraging to see how Harare Theological College has grown to 120 students. Back in Malawi things were less well, during our absence several girls left the girlshome as they complained that their schoolfees weren't paid and they received little food. They appealed for help to a community based organisation (CBO) in Bangwe which then contacted us. For the time being the girls are taken care of in a homebased care setting under supervision of the local CBO while we provide the funding for their upkeep. It is really sad that the situation at the home is so bad that girls are appealing to other organisations for help.
