Distribution (2009)

On Friday I completed my main project here. I said a while ago how I hoped to give all 100 school children a bag with various items. The money you guys and others have given me enabled me to do it and everyone got the following items:

o Tshirt
o Socks
o Pants
o 2 pens
o Sweets
o Biscuits
o Toothbrush
o Toothpaste
o Skin cream
o Soap
o Comb
o Shoes

It was actually quite tricky to get hold of all the items as no shop stocked more than a handful of any one thing. Also getting everything back to the village by bus was often quite an effort, but it is done now and the children were delighted.

The contents of the bag

I was pleased to be able to clear some space in my house. Everything came in under budget also. I had planned on 10,000tshs per child and it ended up costing 9,000tshs (£4.50, $6.50)

Everything was arranged into small, medium and large sizes

Then they filed into the room in batches

Here are some of the children immediately after


About Imo & Tom Feilding

I'm in my 30s and work for the University of Bristol, I regularly visit Buigiri Village slapbang in the centre of Tanzania in East Africa. It is a very poor semi-desert area. I spend much of my time and money helping individuals improve their situation and I write about it on here.
