Sponsorship Update - Autumn 2022 

Following a visit to Tanzania at the end of October updates will shortly be provided on all sponsored children both at primary school and at the Centre. We have two children moving to secondary school in January 2023. 


The Centre is running nicely and we have a very good team of committed people working with us. As usual we still need more sponsors. We have increased the number of registered children at the Centre but of the 30 children only 12 have a sponsor, plus there are so many more children who could be at the Centre if we had the funds. We can take 50 children at the Centre.



A copy of our September 2022 newsletter is available by clicking on the PDF logo. This will open the newsletter in a new window. 


Annual Report from the Board of Governors - January 2022

The Lukani Children's Centre currently has 38 children registered, mixed boys and girls. Of these 12 children will start at various local primary schools next January. We have 31 sponsored children but care for many more. 13 children at primary school took the fourth grade national exam at the end of October. Two children, Stella and Medina, will start secondary school next year. 

Poultry Project - The project is progressing well and the Centre is benefitting from the eggs with the children getting two per week. The children learn to look after the chickens, including how the by product fertiliser can be used in the vegetable garden. 

Vegetable Garden - the gardens are very productive and supply vegetables three times a week for the Centre. Again the children play an active role in tending to the plants. 

Building Report - All facilities are in good condition and comply with regulations.  

Teaching Resources - The Centre has a good supply of learning and teaching materials, including sports equipment such a swings, ropes, tennis and balls. Good quality footballs are hard to come by. 

Minibus - the vehicle is in good condition with new tyres and no other defects. 

The Board of Governors recognise the importance of the trustees, sponsors and supporters of Let Them Shine and the incredible contribution they make. Without them the Centre would not be able to operate as it does and many children would go unsupported. We are very grateful and wish you all the best.
