July Visit:  Gill and Jonathon Bates, Laura Barrowclough, Graham and Sheila Pountain, Emmakulatha, Jesca, Sophia, Minza and Fatuma traveled on the 30th June and returned (except Minza and Fatuma) on the 19th July. Most of what was accomplished is listed below including the education we did with the children, the Reunion Weekend and the childcare seminars. 

Also, see Gill’s report and Laura’s report and Jonathon’s report.

Reunion Weekend: This was a great success and a report by Jesca is available here

‘Childcare’ Seminars: Emmakulatha and Jesca took four groups for childcare studies. They were; ‘Elementary Childcare’ consisting of 12 sessions for std 6 girls,  ‘Basic Childcare’ consisting of 12 sessions for secondary school girls.  The first week’s 3 day seminar was for our own care-workers and local people and the 2nd week’s seminar was for ‘out of town’ candidates for whom we had to provide accommodation.  The 2nd week’s seminar was supported by 4 children’s homes, Forever Angels, JBFC, Tumaini and Starehe and we are grateful for their support. We had initially set the max number to be 20 candidates but we ended up with 27.  Each candidate was given a certificate proving attendance on the course and an assessment of what they have achieved. The results of the assessments are: Bethany care-workersSecondary girlsStd 6 Girls.  We decided not to publish the results for our visiting candidates but a link to a full list of those who attended is on our home page together with a photograph of the candidate and their certificate. 
Bethany School: We have now been in operation for about 18 months things have settled down a little. We have 4 qualified teachers and several teaching assistants for our 80+ students.
Students in England:

Minza and Fatuma are now back as teachers at Bethany.  Sophia is applying to Blackburn University centre to join the degree course that Emma and Jesca are doing and as long as she has passed her level 2 English course she should be OK. All three younger girls are hoping for high marks in their diplomas and Fatuma and Sophia are hoping for grade C’s in GCSE maths. Jesca and Emma have finished their first year on the ‘Education’ degree course and have acheived 68% and 64% respectively - a little short of the 70% they need for a first class honours. The are also waiting results of higher level GCSE in maths and GCSE in R.E

Prospective UK Students: The girls (Rehema, Deborah and Mpelwa) took their IELTS English examination on the 25th June at the British Council Offices in Nairobi Kenya. They needed a band 4 pass and I am pleased to say they achieved the following; Rehema band 6. Deborah band 5.5 and Mpelwa band 5.  They and we are overjoyed as they had worked very hard to improve their English in order to pass the four part 3.5 hour exam which included, Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking.  Accrington and Rossendale College are prepared to enroll them for the 2 year Diploma course Free of Charge and we have the funds for their accommodation.  We only have one problem to overcome - it appears that Mr. Wambura Kizito of Magu Social Welfare is against the girls coming to the UK for further education as he would prefer them to finish their secondary education in Tanzania first.  However we are convinced that it would be in their best interests to take the opportunity now (two are aged 17yrs and one will be 18yrs on the 8th August) as the offer may not be available in a few years time and they have proved with the extra English and childcare studies that they are ready now.  We already have two students doing the BA degree course in the UK who had no secondary education from Tanzania (std 7 leavers).  Unfortunately Mr. Wambura Kizito’s judgement is also somewhat clouded by one of our ex-Bethany students - Eva Sitta who spent 12 months in the UK doing a certificate in Childcare.  Eva you will remember was returned early to Tanzania because of problems we would rather not disclose.  Eva was planning to be married in September and Bethany was going to hold the event but due to developments beyond our control this is unlikely to happen.  Eva blames Bethany for all her problems and has reported to social welfare a fabrication of untruths and lies intended to stop any further girls taking the opportunity of coming to England.  Unfortunately, Mr. Wambura has not yet found time to follow up Eva’s account and compare it with others who have studied in the UK like China, Rehema, Minza or Fatuma.  We feel sure that once this investigation is complete that social welfare will once again encourage and support our visa application for our girls.  Until then we ask you to pray for the situation, that eyes are opened and that we are able to find a good human rights lawyer who would help as this decision may be seen as an infringement of the students human rights - to take advantage of the best education available.

Teaching of English and now Maths: It is now possible to communicate with all the children at Bethany in English.  This makes life so much easier and opens up other possibilities.  One of the problem areas in Tanzania is the teaching of Maths especially for girls.  For example, Rehema got 3% in Maths and Mpelwa 2%.  They need your help.  From the video (messages) you will see the children’s English needs to improve and again you can help.
If you are interested in helping with the teaching of English or Maths at Bethany please email me.

Training for older children :  We have 8 children on various training courses

New Children; We have 4 new children, 2 new girls from Forever Angels and two more from Mwanza.    Photos here

Secondary school children:  We have 20 children attending secondary school (8 girls and 12 boys).  

Half Way House: No progress at present

Other Improvements/Refurbishments: The refurbishment of the girls dormitory is now nearly completed

The Future: We find the greatest problem in Tanzania is the shortage of good, committed, dedicated, well trained teachers (as well as many other things). We feel that many of our children could fulfill that roll and with the benefit of the girls receiving higher education in the UK we see no reason why in the future we could not provide secondary and high school education followed one day by a teacher training college. Our girls returning from the UK having completed their 2 yr diploma course and are prepared to teach at Bethany for 12 moths for a small living allowance and then after that receive the full teachers salary (actually less than governments schools).  Our three girls on the degree course have offered to teach for two years on the same basis.  This is all very encouraging and if we had the funds we could slowly grow our numbers up to a maximum of say 300 children providing on site education right through to qualified teacher status with a special emphasis on English and Maths. All we need are the volunteers and the finance!
New vehicle:
We already have an amount of money set aside for this but still need about
12,000 to buy a new Toyota pickup truck.

New boys accommodation: No further developments.  We are considering three options: refurbishment of the existing buildings.  New large boys dorm or a range of smaller buildings which would house between 10 and 20 children which could suit different age groups.

Finance: Now that we have undertaken the education of our children on site our monthly estimate for each child has risen by about 10 per month - making a total of 50 per month.
