To Love a Child, Inc. -- Zimbabwe Project Manager Will Be Joining Us for our Annual Dinner on Thursday, November 8th.
We are thrilled that Munowei Chirovamavi is able to travel to the USA and join us for our annual dinner. Muno is available for speaking engagements the week prior to the dinner. If you are interested in having him visit your club, group or church please contact us at directoratTLC@aol.com.
Please help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 this month so it can be matched dollar-for-dollar! The kids in Zimbabwe and Haiti are counting on us! Thank you!
Lead by team member, Karen Bishop, our bee education program was a wonderful success. Students in the classroom completed age appropriate activities that helped them learn about pollination, types of bees and the benefits of honey. One hive was established prior to our arrival so students could enjoy a taste of this sweet treat. More hives will be established so that more and more people can benefit from honey production.
Our first stop was a little town outside of the Capital City of Harare. Here we presented an abundance of speciality toys and games for children with disabilities. For two days we played with these wonderful kids and young adults and listened to the heartbreaking stories of their moms who struggle every single day to buy food, clothing and medicine. The parachute pictured above was a big hit and the little boy loved playing keep-away with the flag football belt. There are so many needs for this program. Any special education teachers out there want to get involved????? Please let us know.

It's official. We are going to Haiti in November. RPI-Engineers for a Sustainable World will be part of our team and will be constructing a mobile solar charging station in Rantlamouaie. We are looking for several teachers to join us to conduct a special training session with the Haitian teachers. Of course, there is always room for others--everyone has a gift to share!
