Support the Katumbi Clinic & School

Mahale lies at the edge of the world.  The communities here rely on fishing and agriculture but education is a privilege and opportunities for earning an income are few and far between.

The village is cut off from most nearby areas, with very limited transport services, hardly any communication lines or electricity, and little support from the government, things that we all take for granted. It has become one of the most resilient and resourceful communities. Villagers live a very simple hand-to-mouth existence, coping with few services and meeting only their most basic needs. Two of the main, and only, infrastructure  facilities that help keep the village running are the village primary school and clinic. 

Katumbi Primary School: The 1200+ children here are eager for knowledge and the chance to go to school. Any support goes a long way and helps give these children the chance at an education and equipping them with even basic literacy give them the foundations for a better life and new opportunities. Past support has included the building of classrooms, a new teachers house, desks and other furniture, text books and learning equipment, solar laptops, and a meal-a-day for the nursery school, but we still want to do more.  

Katumbi Clinic: This tiny clinic serves this remote population on a shoestring of funds. Nurse Elizabeth treats malaria, delivers babies, deals with burns and wounds, and just about everything in between. Basic equipment and consumables are hard to come by, and the clinic does not even have a power supply. Our contributions make a huge difference, keeping the clinic running and offering a life line of even basic health treatment for villagers. 

We would like to say a big THANK YOU to Pencils for Hope who continue to do amazing work in support of both the School and Clinic.
