Busega Scotland is celebrating 5 years of working in Tanzania, with parties all over the world; on each continent, culminating in the ‘Big Mayega Party’ at the Children’s Centre in November!
The aims of the project are supportive and educational:
• To show the children at Mayega that there are people worldwide who are interested in them and want to join in their celebration.
• For the children to learn about places completely outside their experience, and to let people across the world know about them.
The Mayega party will include a large wall map, so the children can see where other parties have taken place along with photographs and information.
We believe this project to be unique, and so far we expecting parties in:
Europe – Scotland, England, Germany, Spain and Switzerland
Africa – Senegal and Tanzania
North America – Canada and the USA
South America – Brazil
Asia – China and Malaysia
Australasia – Australia and New Zealand
Antarctica – we are working on this!
The first party involved the trustees of Busega Scotland at the end of their recent meeting. The centrepiece was a cake with five candles!
The celebrations have begun in Moray and will end in Mayega via every continent on earth – how good is that!
