A Garden Party and the road to Isanga!

We have enjoyed a lovely day at the E.I. Garden Party! The Bendells were our lovely hosts and we met with many people who have worked with Emmanuel International over the past 25 years! We enjoyed a chance to chat with Andrew Wingfield's parents who were in Iringa in March!

We enjoyed reading Andrew and Miriam's newsletter last night! It is exciting to read about all that we will soon be involved in! They recently went to the church in the Isanga village up in the mountains. This is the site of a proposed water project that will bring clean piped water to the community. Here is a photo of the Wingfields on the 3 and a half hour journey to church!


There is a lot going on in Uhambingeto ... they have been working on the rainwater harvesting tanks at the primary school and are still working on improving the latrine facilities and the education programme. They have been teaching on the importance of water, how to care for water sources and how to avoid disease from unsafe water. The plan is also to teach on sanitation and household hygiene.
