At the end of June we had a really exciting and wonderful event.
Our first Mbuyu Katanga Community clean up.
When our 80 mum's and dads ( of our Read for life kids) completed our WASH program ( Water, and sanitation and hygiene) we asked them to share with us how they thought we could improve the sanitation and hygiene of katanga slum community. After all its their community - they know the best way to impact it.
They collectively agreed we should hold a community clean up, not only to pick up rubbish but to raise awareness as we cleaned of better ways to dispose of rubbish and the importance of good hygiene, to the overall health of all citizens of Katanga.
So with the support of the local council and some local businesses who donated various cleaning items for us, all our Mbuyu team along with more than 70 of our families set about cleaning Katanga one Friday.
It was an exciting day and bought us all closer together. There was lots of joy and laughter as we joined together for prayer and for a photo before we headed out in groups.
