Wheelchairs for Tanzania @ Mary Elton

Peter (headteacher from Kikoboga School in Tanzania) sent this photo of a secondary pupil called Sabrina who needed a wheelchair and has just received it. It was financed with our generous support at the end of last term. Without this wheelchair, Sabrina's outcomes in life would be significantly limited and she sends her thanks to us.

As a school, we have financed close to 20 wheelchairs for those in need in Tanzania. They are made in the north of the country in Arusha by a local company called 'Mobility Care' - some of our teachers have been to visit the workshop on previous trips. They are then transported down to Peter in Kikiboga school and then sent off to the recipient.
