A happy smiling face!
Kabula has been awarded an Upper Second Class Diploma in Secretarial from the Belvedere Business and Technology College, Mwanza. This is the culmination of three years hard work that started with a foundation course at the Youth for Christ College Mwanza and a further two years at BBTC.
Kabula thanks the many people who have supported her along the way and invested in her future. Without that help Kabula could not have gone on to study.
Her success and the way she has conducted herself throughout her course makes her a great role model for the younger children at Mayega Children’s Centre.
We wish her further success as she circulates her CV and searches for a job. It will not be easy but she has the confidence of knowing she is well equipped to work.
Busega Scotland is very proud of her !
Sunshine followed by a monsoon did not dampen the enthusiasm of our superb Busega Scotland team in the 14th Elgin Marafun. The format is five runners sharing the full marathon distance, as a relay.
Our team is shown in the order that they ran – Calum, Alison, Stacey, Dot and Dale.
Team captain, Stacey, even ran with a broken arm – how determined was that and covered 5.2 miles in 41 minutes. The team was sponsored for Busega Scotland and raised a magnificent £500+ (£100 will be donated to the Rotary Club of Elgin, who are the organisers of Marafun). Many thanks to our athletes and sponsors. Enjoy the photos
The youngest primary school children were happy when Pastor Deuli dropped in to see them today . They were just home from school. In Tanzanian households a visitor is always seen as a “blessing on the house” and the Mayega Children’s Centre is no different.
The Pastor visits twice per month and is in daily contact with the Matron ensuring that all day to day matters are dealt with. On this visit he was bringing some school text books to add to the Mayega collection. We try to make sure we have a copy of any books the children need for revision.
We are still working on trying to get a stable internet connection at the Children’s Centre. Some days are better than others but today we managed to establish a link with Scotland. It did not last long but we were able to greet each other and see how happy the children were!
On Sunday 4thJune 2017 Elgin Rotary Club will host the 14th biennial Marafun.The event raises funds for local charities.
