READ FOR LIFE UPDATE - Feeding


READ FOR LIFE IS LOOKING FORWARD TO A VERY EXCITING YEAR !

WE RAISED ENOUGH FOR US TO BE ABLE TO DO ALL THE RENOVATIONS SO THEY ARE CURRENTLY BEING COMPLETED.

ALL THE CLASSROOMS ARE DONE AND NOW BEING USED - ONLY WAITING FOR ONE SMALL AREA TO BE CONCRETED.

WE RAISED ENOUGH TO GET NEW DESKS AND CHAIRS MADE AND TO BUY MORE BOOKS - ALWAYS ON THE LOOK OUT FOR MORE BOOKS THOUGH!

WE STARTED FEEDING THE CHILDREN A MONTH AGO AND HAVE HAD A BEAUTIFUL NEW COOK JOIN OUR TEAM - EACH SESSION GETS A CUP OF HOT PORRIDGE AND A SAMOSA ( a samosa is a yummy triangle full of vegetables and peas- hard to explain - a bit like a spring roll kind of - but bigger )

WE PLAN TO CHANGE THIS TO FEED THEM RICE AND BEANS IN A FEW MONTHS AFTER WE HAVE THE COOKING FACILITIES BUILD BETTER.

ITS GOING TO BE AN EXCITING YEAR WITH SO MUCH MORE PLANNED FOR READ FOR LIFE !

ENJOY SOME OF THE PHOTOS AND VIDEOS FROM THE FIRST DAY WE STARTED FEEDING THE KIDS - THEY WERE EXTREMELY EXCITED!

One of our precious girls leading the baby class in prayer before eating.


I love this picture - shows class is in session

Treaching good hygiene practices.



Enjoying their porridge and samosa


Our wonderful cook- a local lady from Katanga slum


The baby class enjoying their food - Notice Hezekiah sitting a bit further away - they were fascinated by him when I sat him with them - so much so they wouldn't eat cause they wanted to touch him - so had to move him a little further away.

Once the novelty wears off I'm sure they'll be use to him and he to them.
