At Enjabulweni, the final year primary grade pupils moved into their own rooms. The new rooms were created by dividing the old bedroom into different cubicles. As a result, they all got their own little private space with a bed and a locker. Thanks to Don Bosco Mondo, Bonn; Alex Winkler, Austria; Fr Larry & MYC volunteers for their support on this badly needed accommodation upgrade.
Many congratulations to past MYC volunteer, Christopher Hopton, from London, UK who has successfully completed the Bosporus river cross continental swim race in Turkey. The river lies between the continents of Europe and Asia. Chris undertook this feat as a fundraising venture on behalf of our marginalized youth at MYC. Niyabonga Kakhulu bhuti Chris! (thanks, brother!)
In September MYC greeted the arrival of 17 new volunteers. From Belgium we have Daniela Pittomvils, Lore Janssen, Sarah Opdekamp and Sophie Geuens. From the UK Amelia Revill-Hayward , Freya Woodward , Johnny Singleton , Joanna Coulson , Lauren Angus and Matthew Hamer arrived. From Finland we welcomed Merja Huuhka, Mirjam Skarp and Ville Lappalainen. At last from the Netherland we have Dorien Lijnzaad, Kayla Zegers, Kimberly Taco and Melanie Huisman. The volunteers will be here for 3, 6 or 12 months. They will get involved in all aspects of MYC projects including teaching, sports, social welfare, evening studies at the homes and other activities. MYC is happy to welcome them all!
The marimbaband of MYC had the opportunity to perform on a gala dinner hosted by East3route. This is a development initiative between 3 countries: Swaziland, South-Africa and Mozambique. The band played their set during the reception of the event. The guests loved their performance!
