The story of Mazumilu

October 2013

Last year our street workers found Muzamilu, a very young boy strolling on the street and trying to survive with begging and stealing. We brought him to the Back Home House and our team started the process of counseling to get to know him and did home visiting to seek for his family. He is lonely, quiet and stammering may be because of his handicap, a head deformation since he was born. We came to know that he ran away from his aunt who was taking care of him. But she was not good with children, not even for her own children. The time we visited her house she was in jail...

The chairman visits Mwanza

In September I had the opportunity to visit Upendo Daima again and to see the progress with my own eyes. A lot has been achieved during the past year. Because mama Lukuba passed away earlier this year a new financial officer has been recruited and as from end 2012 the new assistant coordinator has been active. It was very good to meet them personally and work with. The team is very enthusiastic and many children have been able to return to their parents or families.

It was very good to personally meet all employees again, including the new staff that started early this year...

16 straatkinderen treden op

Augustus 2013

Na enorm hard trainen en lobbyen bij diverse hotels was het zover, de 16 kinderen van onze acrobatiekgroep onder leiding van Gilbert mochten een optreden verzorgen in twee bekende hotels in Mwanza,Tunza lodge aan het strand en in het Tai5 hotel in de stad.

Onder grote belangstelling en gejuich van het publiek werden de mooiste acts die Gilbert hen geleerd had opgevoerd. De kinderen waren apetrots en hun gezichtjes straalden na afloop. Tijdens de optredens steeg hun zelfvertrouwen met de minuut en het heeft hen een enorme kick gegeven. Gilbert...

Fantastisch resultaat

16 mei 2013

Wij hebben vandaag gehoord dat de rit van 165 kilometer die Caspar van Strijp gereden heeft niet voor niets is geweest, de spontane aktie van Caspar heeft maar liefs 1177,55 Euro opgebracht, heel erg bedankt Caspar en alle sponsoren, wij zijn ontzettend blij.

Namens de kinderen van Malimbe Family en het Back Home House, asante sana!

Caspar reed hem uit!

Na een rit van 130 km met een gemiddelde tijd van 27.1 km per uur zag Caspar er nog best fris uit gisteren tijdens de ronde van Nijmegen, zie foto..

Maar na het maken van de foto's moest hij nog eens 36 km en daarvan is geen foto beschikbaar! Fantastisch werk verricht en het lenteweer zat ook al mee, alleen in Duitsland kregen de racers een flinke hoosbui te verduren.
