NewsThe latest from Songea's Kids
New Child Co-Sponsor System: In June the Songea’s Kids Board
approved a child co-sponsor system to enable us to cope with the high inflation in Tanzania and the increased
cost of education as more orphans succeed in entering secondary and/or vocational school. This system broadens
the base of support for each child without overburdening a Basic Needs Sponsor ($55/month.
An Education Sponsor ($27.50/month) enables children to stay in school and progress according to
their abilities and commitment to become self-supporting, productive citizens. Children with sponsors no longer
experience food insecurity; fear about the future is replaced with HOPE. See the Donate page for more information
and help us spread the word so all children have the support they need to succeed.
Chicken-Raising Project: Work is underway in Mshangano Village on the chicken-raising project
to improve nutrition for the children and provide income to sustain the project. Local laborers using local materials are building the chicken
coop now under the direction of a village planning committee and supervision by Jirani Mwema. Thanks to Sowing Seeds of Hope for funding this
Chicken Coop Construction:
The chicken coop below has been completed and is ready for the arrival
of the chicks. They are to be delivered the week of September 9th.
