The amazing culmination of Lizzie & team’s vision and hard work….
The Mto wa Mbu Community Centre has opened! Over 70 people came to the open house and 30 have come to classes on each of the first two days!
Lizzie came to Mto wa Mbu as a Boma volunteer six years ago and went home with a dream of providing a community learning centre for the village! Lizzie founded The Mto wa Mbu Project and has provided the vision, the funds, and a lot of motivation & patience! Boma Africa provided the land and hands on support to get the project off the ground.
It is such a dream to see the community’s excitement about this new centre! Asante to everyone who supported along the way!
“So this is a pretty special post. I am so so excited to announce that our Community Centre is open and classes are running. This is so surreal – I almost feel like I’m not feeling the full excitement of this moment because I think I’m actually in shock! Anthea, myself, our team and every one of our supporters and donors have worked for 6 years to bring this to life and it has finally happened. The last few days have seen the centre filled with people coming to learn and the joy that has come from this has been so amazing to witness and be a part of. In just two days I see beautiful relationships building between students who come to the centre and I’m seeing Farha blossom as a kind, passionate, wonderful teacher as well as centre manager. I’m trying to take the time to really soak all this in! So from the bottom of my heart, thankyou for all your support. This project is so needed, and every day I am seeing why.” -Lizzie
