Story

Welcome to Beverley and Paul’s Just Giving sponsor page. On 7th October 2018 we are taking part in the Maidenhead Rotary club’s annual 13 mile boundary walk. We are hoping to raise money to help with a project to get fresh water to a school and small village in Tanzania called Kongwa. Some of you may remember that last year we were lucky enough to visit this town and see first-hand the problems the local people and school children face on a daily basis.

We take turning on a tap, or flushing the toilet for granted, but villages in Tanzania, for the main, do not have this luxury. Many have to walk miles each day to find water and then carry it back home in large containers. Despite the water issues and having very little everyone we met during our visit welcomed us with open arms and were genuinely happy to see us. The visit left a lasting impression on us and now we want to do something to help those we now consider friends.

Our friend Barbara spent her childhood in this town and has since spent many years helping the people of Kongwa. Last year money she raised enabled a new toilet block to be built which included disabled facilities. To make these facilities more hygienic she now needs to get a reliable source of water. There are ways to locate water sources and drill wells in the area but it is an expensive task so all the money we raise will go to this project.

Visit Barbara's web page to see the work she does for the "Mnyakongo School Project": http://kongwaconnected.org/

Some other pictures from our visit are below.

Thank you for taking the time to read our story and for any donation you can spare.

    Tomorrow (Sunday) is the day and hopefully the weather looks better than today at least! We have met, and in fact exceeded (with donations on the paper form included), our target with your help – a massive thank you. We had an update from Barbara who is currently in Tanzania. Currently a few modifications to the disabled toilets are underway and soon she hopes to have raised enough money to start work on the bore hole. The money you are helping us to collect is going a long way towards this so you are helping make a real difference.

    Just 5 days to go until our sponsored walk. A massive thank you to those of you who have already sponsored us both on JustGiving and the paper forms - we are well on our way to our target. Our friend Barbara is currently in Tanzania taking donations of clothes and school supplies to the children in the village and helping sort out needed repairs to the school. We are looking forward to an update from her when she returns and we will share this with you. Here are a few photos we took last year of the children of Kongwa.
