Another SAIDIA Volunteer makes a difference

21 January 09

BCDSA (Busega Children’s and Development Services Assistance) is a grassroots organisation supported by SAIDIA. In November 2008, BCDSA – with the help of a SAIDIA Volunteer Molly Matheson – wrote an application for funding to the annual Mwanza Charity Ball. Today BCDSA received news that their application was successful and that they shall receive 690,000 Tanzania Shillings (approximately £350)!!!


This money will enable them to purchase a plough and oxen in order to farm enough land to provide staple food for the 24 children at Mkula Children’s Centre. Every week has been a struggle for BCDSA to find food for the children. This grant shall make all the difference, bringing BCDSA that one step closer to a sustainable source of food for all the kids.


Congratulations BCDSA, and thank you Molly!!!
