Again this year we redecorated with fresh chitenje cloths – with which Billy Bwanali the local tailor, re-covered all our cushions. We then paid for him to make last year’s faded, but good, covers into clothes for the village orphans. We do this every year – it seems to make more sense to re-use everything for the common good.

Vision is shown in the picture, with some of these vulnerable children, in the vegetable garden which they propagate for food and sell the surplus of for cash. We buy from him whenever he has spare produce to sell. So the salads on Mumbo are sometimes real feel-good food!
