I am helping to set up a nursery school in Chang'ombe, Dodoma, Tanzania, East Africa. This is a very poor area that has lost hope. Families can not afford to pay for their children's pre-school education, children aged 3-7. Practical health care is not given as medical treatment costs money that local families do not have. One child had to have part of his leg amputated as a large wound had not been treated. I would like to ensure that the nursery children get appropriate health care immediately to avoid unnecessary complications. Food supplies are limited so we would like to provide porridge and fruit to supplement their very basic diet. We are completely starting from the beginning. We have a room which we have plastered, painted and made fit for a nursery school. We have also completed the work on the toilets to make them safe and hygienic to use by the children and the church community. We have asked local trades men to make tables, cupboards, mats, tee shirts etc. Eventually we would like to make the area at the back of the building into a playground. I would also like to able to send the teachers to complete their teacher training while working at the school.

    First week back in Dodoma. The nursery has been plastered and painted. There is just a mat on the floor with a few toys. We still need storage units to house the toys and activities needed in the nursery. Tables and chairs are still needed. It is raining heavily at the moment making it difficult to travel.
