This has been the toughest year for everyone here at All Out Africa with no volunteers for the whole year.
With your support we were able to put a smile on more than 300 vulnerable children’s faces. This year was a bit different as we hosted the Christmas party at each NCP due to the covid-19 protocol.
We could not bring the children all together at once like the previous years.
The children enjoyed a meal of rice, chicken, beetroot, butternut, potatoes, and juice, Which they also took home to share with other family members. They were also given a special treat of lollipop and nicknacks.
We would like to thank you and other donors from Norway for helping us make this special day a special one for these less privileged children.
Having no volunteers for the whole year has brought a lot of strain on our projects but we still remain optimistic and continue to do what we do.
Without your support all of this would not have been possible. We truly appreciate you for always having us in your thoughts.
Please find attached Christmas card from the All Out Africa family. Despite this difficult situation we wish you a Merry Christmas and prosperous New Year!
On behalf of the All Out Africa family, we want to thank you so much for your support and generous contribution. Today was beautiful day for the 8 NCPs with a total number of 315 children, as their were celebrating their Christmas party. It was an abundance of excitement and fun since most of the children did not expect to have such a celebration especially with the current pandemic.
We have supported the startup of two chicken farms in Eswatini, funded with microfinance loans outside the donation to All out Africa foundation. The initiative came from two young women working in the project, Eunice and Xolile
We have now received an update on the projects with financial status. The farms have been constructed and the first chickens will ready for the market before christmas as a result of the work of two fantastic women. It can hardly be better than this!
Report from Eunice:
“The chicken business was started on the 4th of November 2020 and I am happy to let you know that the chickens will be fully matured and ready for the market on the 18th December.
It is not always easy when you start something new as I experienced a few challenges and lost 16 chickens due to the heat. I am optimistic that the business will grow in the future from what it is today. I also look forward into doing a short course in poultry rearing in order to sharpen my skills and help me get the best breed. I am looking forward into expanding the chicken shed as soon as I start generating income.
Thank you so much for always having us in your thoughts, especially during these difficult times.”
We have recently transferred our support for first half of 2021 to All out Africa in Eswatini. The donation is dedicated to:
Supporting the vulnerable children in the NCPs
A Christmas party for the children and staff this year
Some support for AoA staff in this special situation due to the pandemic
This is the response we received from Eswatini today. (Pictures will follow)
I would like to send a big thank you on behalf of the All Out Africa staff and all the underprivileged children that we work with at our NCPS. No amount of words can describe t grateful we are for your immense support.
It has come at the right time when it is needed the most as we rely on volunteers and people like you to be able to help the NCP children that we work with. Without your support all of this would never be possible.
