SEE THE PROJECTS RUN BY TAFIKA COMMUNITY BASED ORGANISATION
Marys Meals School feeding Project
Tafika are delighted to be working with Marys Meals on a school feeding project involving 10 communities. This should start n September 2021.
HELPING ELDERLY PEOPLE
90 years old Elinayi Zgambo lived here with her 13 grand children. Tafika built a house for her. We worked with Plan International. Tafika identified the need, mobilized the community, provided labor.
£1 provides 1,111 meals!
Woriking with funding supplied by Nourishing Minds we enable the community to feed their own school children
Tafika bought and provided them with 100 kilograms of fertilizer and 10 kilograms of maize seed to produce and feed school going children.
we spent Mk60,000 ($80 or £63) and produced 70,000 meals for 500 children.
ORPHANS AND VULNERABLE CHILDREN (OVC) SUPPORT
This is Nelise Mwale of Chisangano Primary School, one of the vulnerable children we are supporting. Here she has been given a School uniform and clothes from Tafika. She lives with her father who has a mental illness. Her mother died a couple of years ago.
Pupils are receiving school uniforms from Tafika OVC Program. It is important that children feel good about themselves and that they 'fit in'. A uniform is a key element in that.
SCHOOL FEES SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
Tafika also runs a School fees sponsorship program. The project is helping 285 students with funding from Plan International.
PASS THE PIGS PROGRAM
Tafika has a program where we buy a bag of cement and a pig for a family. We show them how to build a sty and train them on how to look after a pig. We even bring a male pig to visit, because when the sow has piglets we ask the owner to pass on the first two piglets to the next family. In this way the community as a whole is strengthened.
