Joining forces

Dear Friends,

I pray this finds you all well. It certainly has been a while since I managed to get time to sit down and blog. All as been going on well. Team Nhaka has been busy as always working with communities to bring about sustainable change and development in impoverished communities.

One of my close friends was asking me a few days ago when I was going to stop working like this. My simple reply to this question has always been, we will not stay any day longer after communities have harnessed their strengths, capabilities and are working well looking after their own orphaned, abandoned and neglected children. Not a day longer!

In the past few weeks I have come across some strong willed men and women who are determined to eliminate poverty and provide access to basic education to the children from poor families. This has truly been heart warming and I am very grateful that I have been granted access into the lives of these people and work with them to identify their own strengths that they can utilize to support the children in their care. This has never been easy but they are willing to trying out new approaches as long as they ensure that their children are fed and secure access to education.

As an organization, Nhaka Foundation partners with any organization that has children at heart and that wants to bring about sustainable change and development. All the programs we are managing are going on very well and the Team is very engaged in ensuring that we are not just fire fighting but w are working with the communities to ensure that they continue thriving and providing care to the children long after we have left their communities.

Im going to be writing in a little while about some exciting partnerships that we have been involved in recently. I thank God for the new people and organizations we meet on a daily basis that form interest in joining forces with us in the work being done. As long as it leaves communities with the capacity to revitalize the community safety net, we are up for it!

In the mean time God bless you and thanks for all the support.

Kind regards,
