WCDP received a generous donation of $1000 from Joe and Janet, and we have given half of this donation to the Buhoma Community Savings and Loan Association, AKA the Buhoma SACCO. The Buhoma SACCO sets up savings accounts for its members and provides micro loans for business development and other activities in the community. It also helps support the construction of schools, clinics and other essentials in this remote village.
The $500 given to Buhoma SACCO was well spent, providng 73 pangas (machetes) and 100 hoes for its members to use on their farms. They also purchased t-shirts for all of the SACCO staff. We are very pleased with these purchases and feel the $500 was well spent and impacted many lives.
The remaining $500 from Joe and Janet is targeted for the community of Kasolwe and the KaNaKi Community Devepment Organization to help with the construction of a community school.
