The hoteli team of Maria Magdalena Sheltered Workshops has baked special Valentine Cakes. They are sold for 50 Bob each.
What a pity! An export to Germany is not possible...
Kristina Kenyatta Pratt, the Kenyan President`s sister came to Munyu - a great honor! She is the patron of the NFDK (National Association of Handicapped Kenyans). She came in April 2018, for the official handover of the new dormitories.
In 2018, we provided € 14,000 for Maria Magdalena Special School to cover the operating deficit. And we also partly funded the new dorms.
The United Nations Day for Persons with Disabilities took place on December 3rd. 2018 on the grounds of the Sheltered Workshops. More than 500 visitors came to Gatuanyaga. Large tents were set up. The restaurant Café Lindenhof provided food for the visitors.
It was a very successful celebration and a good opportunity to raise awareness in the population.
Maria Magdalena Special School and Sheltered Workshops has a new headmaster.
Mr Syanda has been working at both facilities since July. He stood up at the Ministry of Education for more teachers for the Sheltered Workshops. Now there are three teachers working in turns. There is always a teacher who takes care of the people with disabilities, even on weekends.
On behalf of our association and the people in Munyu we say Asante Sana and Kwa heri.
Without Father Schrode the parish of Mary Magdalene in Munyu would not exist. Our treasurer Matthias Trautner has honored the life and work of Father Schrode. Maria Magdalena Special School honoured Michael Schrode in a special church service.
This year's high school graduates donated us 3,000 €. The former students donated the money which was left over from their Abi prom. The teachers, who have been involved in our association for years, look with pride on these young people. We are happy about this generous gesture!
We were shocked to hear the news of the death of Father Schrodes. He dedicated his life to spreading the Christian faith, even in distant countries like Kenya. Our club not only loses an important support, but also a great visionary.
Gabriel Makumi succumbed to his cancer and was buried in Kenya last week. At his funeral, the stream of mourning people did not break. We include him and his family in our thoughts and prayers.
A student of the Nicolaus Kopernikus Gymnasium in Weißenhorn has compiled a small image film for our organization.
We are happy about his support. Thank you David!
