Project 9 - The main work of the Charity is focused on supporting children in The Elizabeth-Ann Home within the village. Children, aged 9 to 14, are selected on their educational potential with the hope they will go to college. They are provided with all their needs, they live in disciplined surroundings, attend local schools, have supervised and assisted tuition mornings and evenings.

In February 2013 we opened the new dining room that also acts as a large village room - provides a daily lunch for about 15 selected elderly who find cooking for themselves particularly difficult. In about June 2013 we will be increasing the numbers of children to 37. Plus now we need a new kitchen!

We continue to provide some support for the E-A Home leavers and one or two other through their College courses (aged 16-18).

Project 3 – Support for the 43 elderly continues and is much appreciated – we are humbled to see what a few pounds and food can help and be so appreciated.

Project 7Medical support by a doctor holding a surgery every 10 days is much appreciated by about 50 villagers. He can hand-out basic medicines or provide a prescription.

Project 10Microfinance - Continues with many women appreciating their ability to borrow money as short term loans to cover their emergencies or business plans. Vinay also runs a savings bank for the women - husbands are not allowed access!

Project 12 - Sewing machines have enabled some women to escape from manual work in the fields and double their income in their own business. Recently we have been asked for more sewing machines and lessons!

Project 13 – We are running a scheme to loan farmers sufficient cash to enable them to buy seeds and fertiliser for pay-back at the six-monthly harvest. The concept is that these individual loans should decrease each season and the farmer should build up his own savings account to cover future years.

Project 14 – We were alerted to the very poor from adjacent villages approaching Vinay (and his mother, Mary, the Pastor) to beg for help. We are now providing £71 per month for distribution to other poor villagers.

Project 15 – We were alerted to the fact that about 5 villagers have HIV. They need extra medicines that have to be collected from major towns – about £7 per month per villager.
