Just Stop Moving!
Do you ever have that feeling of so many moving pieces, if you could just grab one and pin it down, maybe you could feel like something was finally getting done.
Our Grace Preschoolers have got it right: “Shaky, shaky, shaky! Shaky, shaky, shaky! Shake it to the bottom and shake it to the top! Turn around! Turn around until we say STOP!’
This summer, we called a halt to the spinning plates!
Yes, we just told them to stop! No more moving until we got our feet underneath us on solid ground. We focused on one thing for the summer: Get the Primary School ready for Registration!
AND…we did it!
On September 4th, the government officials who oversee inspections of schools came and did our inspection! WE PASSED!
While I was in Malawi in September, the headmaster, Mr. Henry Chadza, asked if he could write a letter to our board and donors thanking you! Here is his letter:
I, on behalf of the entire staff of Grace Alliance Primary and Nursery schools, would like to thank you all very much for your support you do to us in Malawi, particularly Grace Alliance schools.
Learners and teachers of both schools are thankful to you for the big support and services rendered endlessly to Malawians. You built beautiful classroom blocks, five in number, you have constructed good toilets for both boys and girls, you installed solar panels for our computers, you furnished the Headmaster’s office with chairs. You bought many learners textbooks enough for each class. The office is beautifully painted and classrooms white washed nicely. You allocated money for monthly purchasing of teaching and learning materials that eases the preparation of our work and effectively teach our learners.
We also do not forget thanking you for buying and leasing a big land for secondary and the university schools in the future.
Members of staff are also thanking you for considering raising up our salaries to a better standard so that we are able to support our families and making the institution a workable place in our nation.
We promise to work extra harder so that we yield the best results that will complement the wish of your goals and plans for Malawians.
I believe that you will keep on supporting us financially and materially so that the children of Malawi particularly the needy and people of Katengeza area, where Circle of Hope International is working are educated and contribute to the development of our nation Malawi and the world at large.
Lastly, may the Lord Almighty God bless you abundantly so that you continue supporting us to the will of God.
Thank you very much our director, the board members and the Donors. May you have a nice Christmas and Happy prosperous new year.
Henry B. Chadza
