Two-thirds through the year!

Well the After School Program closed for Term 2 yesterday as the children will be on holidays for two weeks as from next Friday.

This means the ASP has to say goodbye to Emma B, as she will be leaving before we start again on 13 September. Emma will still be at Family of Hope Services (FHS) next week and will then go to Swakopmund for a few days before leaving on the 26th. The Scottish team left on 3 August – it was hard to see them go as they had worked so energetically and enthusiastically and the kids really came to love them…but still having Emma gave us some consolation!

Attendances were still high with a daily average of 88 for the Term. The highest daily attendance was 111 children in July.

Colly and Lazarus arrived back safely from Botswana, full of stories about their Face the Nation training and what they have learned. The EBCAIDS Committee has met with them and are working on a plan of action for using Face the Nation here.

One of our volunteers, Gebby, has been absent for a few weeks as his mother passed away in Zambia and he had to go for the funeral and then stay on to be involved in some of the necessary arrangements. Hopefully he will be back in time for the start of next term.
