I have been looking for a model house for one Upendo Family. The unit houses minimum 12 children but maximum 16 children. This is an ideal unit for one volunteer woman to use in the care of the orphans we are helping. Care has been take to secure the building for both wild animals and burglary. This compact and yet spacious unit will be very safe and comfortable for all the children.
I originally did not envisage that such a unit could be so expensive ( $ 43, 000!). The Diocesan professional assessors in Njombe have given the number and I guess I have to wake up and face reality. May the heavens help us as we help ourselves.
