I know the valley is there but early morning when the mist is rising I canít see it Ė just like God. [More ...]
Travel with us in spirit to the Valley of 1000 Hills
Here you’ll find Kwa Thintwa School for the Deaf – a wonderful, well run and caring place where deaf children are taught in both sign language (the medium of communication) and English, which is the language of reading and writing.
But there is poverty here. Many of the children – who come from rural villages both near and far – can’t afford to pay tuition or boarding fees … and the little school has no funds to pay for new books, DVD players, multi-media boards and a data projector. Since learning is very much a visual exercise for deaf children, these items make all the difference.
With Christmas being the time of caring and giving, please consider a special gift to help equip schools like Kwa Thintwa … and give deaf children the opportunity to learn.
Lusanda Nyoka is typical of the children who need your help.
Just 6 years old, he has severe to profound hearing loss in both ears. His single mom tries her best to help her child. She’s managed to get him fitted with hearing aids and secured a sponsorship from the community to pay for his first term at Kwa Thintwa, where he’s settled down nicely and shows good progress. But his future is uncertain.
If you can make a donation now, we can work together to give deaf children like Lusanda a chance in life.
Your gift to deaf children this Christmas is a gift to their future. Our gift to you is the inclusion of your special intentions at our special Christmas Masses for friends of the Missions.
