Last year, the Midlands Children’s Hope Centre’s three oldest children, Blessed, Disaster and Cleopatra, sat their ‘O’ (ordinary) level examinations. The students have had to wait until now to find out if they have been successful, as the results have only recently been released. It was a long and nervous wait, but the good news is that all three children have passed this level and are now able to enroll in ‘A’ (advanced) level classes to continue their education. Congratulations to Blessed, Disaster and Cleopatra - a great achievement!
Construction on the land for the new Midlands Children’s Hope Centre building is progressing well. For the past two months, Antelope Park builders have been making cement posts and panels. They have now begun to dig holes for the posts and to erect Durawall fencing on the new land. Once this work is complete and the site is secure, building of the new orphanage can commence. The Centre’s vegetable and poultry projects can also be relocated to the new land, allowing for their expansion.
The Centre welcomed its youngest child last week, Tatenda Ncube, who is only 4 years old. The staff at the orphanage have quickly developed a soft spot for Tatenda. So have the boys, who treat him like their little brother and take care of him. Antelope Park volunteers have raised funds for Tatenda to allow him to attend Mickey Mouse Pre-school. They also raised enough money to purchase some clothes and toys for Tatenda as well.
