Here's the latest on the building of the Girls Dormitory in Serenje - wonderful to see the progress being made isn't it?
It's so inspiring to see the pictures and to be reminded of all the different people that have been part of building the dormitory. From the builder Jack who says it's a privilege to build such an impressive building (49 metres long!) to all the people who have given money - both corporately and individually, from those inside our community and from other local individuals and organisations. So much wonderful variety! And all for people that we won't meet and don't know, but who we truly believe are our sisters and brothers in Christ.
And this is one of the earliest photos - when the Dormitory was only a set of plans and a big dream and prayer in the hearts of the Serenje pastors!
The Dormitory is a development out of the original project, and just one aspect of how we have linked with the churches in Serenje, Zambia over the last five years. Responding to the impact of HIV and AIDs, we've been working together with the pastors and local community there to support children in education, families, farmers and church and community leaders.

People are still doing wonderful things, raising money and getting involved. In fact, eight year old Tehya is cycling 4.5 miles round Virginia Water today, raising money for the children in Serenje. It's much easier to donate than to get on your bike and cycle! You can give towards her total here https://www.justgiving.com/Tehya-Allen.
