Misaka is a poor rural area, where our friends Malene and Andreas run a sponsor programme. The kids in this area typically only eat once a day and struggle to pay school fees. In fact the teachers at the school had not been paid their salary for three months as the parents have not paid the fees. The sponsor programme ensures both school fees and uniforms for sponsor kids but also provides breakfast for the entire school.
One of the teachers, Given, a wonderful lady, has adopted several children which she supports on her own.
Another impressive lady is Margaret, who was our maid in my childhood home. She works full time at the farm and her husband works as a psycho-social worker at the clinic. In addition to this the run a small farm, where they grow vegetables and maize and raise chickens including layers. They are struggling to build their own home, so as to live close by their fields and chickens.
