Over the last while there has been a big push at Mayega to improve the environment for the children. Much maintenance work has been carried out and everyone has embraced the tree planting. The passionfruit hedge is producing beautiful flowers and fruit. Another 50 seedlings have arrived for planting out, as the ‘green revolution’ continues.
Our colleagues from the fisheries department delivered 70kg of confiscated fish from illegal fishing (free of charge). This was gutted and laid out on the woodstore roof for drying.Our December arrivals, Daudi and Margaret are settling in well, and were joined recently by Yasini. Already, he seems reassured by the welcome he has received. The staff and children are excellent at this.
Late last year the electrics in the Centre were made ready for mains electricity. There are encouraging signs that the connection will soon be made as poles have been erected and wires hung. Then all we will have to do is pay the bills!
