BENEDICT Tanzania, 2014
Benedict is the first young person we sponsored since our founder passed away. We donated £1300 to our friend Barbara Bristow for her charity (The Amani Centre) in Tanzania. Since we have known Barbara for many years we could trust her to oversee the project professionally. Our donation, along with many others, helped support Benedict, a young man confined to a wheelchair, in his wish to go to college and study computing. As he has had, not only to cope with the course, but also with living away from home for the first time as an independent adult. The money donated also went towards the cost of a new tractor for the farm at Mikesse, where they produce food for The Amani Centre and the local market. The tractor will be invaluable to them and until now they have had to hire a tractor which was very expensive.
