Latest update on SFS, Iyolwa, multipurpose hall.
"Where there's a will there's a way". The crane was unable to come inside the hall to raise the trusses. See how it finally sneaked in and completed the job. Well done!

WE ARE SO PROUD!🤗

Our "older sister", the St. Francis de Sales missionary school in Tabora (Tanzania), founded in 2006, received one of the most appreciated awards distributed by the government of Tanzania:
The school was honored to be one of the best 5 private schools in the whole country - and there are more than 5000 of those! 💐🏫
We are incredibly proud and happy about this success. Gratefully we thank all the people who donated for the project, the motivated teachers and the eager students. It's a prove that passion and hard work both pay off.

Let's celebrate 😊

prep time in the evening - the children are free to chose if they want to sit inside with tables or just relax on the ground outside. wether they work in groups or on their own is also their very personal decision. freedom is the key to happiness and responsibility!
