First Holy Communion

On 14th October, Regina, Hellen, Neema, Zulfa and Paulo received their
First Holy Communion at Baraa Catholic Church. A small party was organised at Malaika for all the other children to celebrate with them. It was an amazing day and everybody enjoyed it.

Animals and Cake!

The children have had lots of fun in the last few weeks. Firstly, Betty celebrated her 6th birthday. She enjoyed a delicious cake from Jutta and Francesca. It has also been Neema's birthday (second picture) and she turned 9 years old.  The children also enjoyed a wonderful trip to Arusha National Park during the school holidays. They really enjoyed playing and spending their holiday time with Francesco and Giulia who arranged that trip.

Our New Store!

The store project has now finished! We give warm thanks to Deepa Hans for all your support in coordinating the project. Everyone at Malaika is delighted with what has been achieved - thank you!!

Birthday Celebrations!

Happy birthday to Fadhili and Anna, a recent volunteer to Malaika. Anna has now unfortunately returned to Italy but everyone at Maliaka would like to thank her for all the care and support she offered. The children had a wonderful time learning circus skills and doing all the exercises with Anna and the teacher that she brought to Malaika. Thank you Anna!

Home Visit to Siaeli

Recently, Francesca and Winnie went to visit Siaeli at her school. Last year, Siaeli returned home to her family and is doing extremely well. She has lots of friends at school, is doing well with her studies and is happy as always!

Big thanks to Annika, a volunteer who recently came from Germany to help at Malaika. Annika was a wonderful help with the house activities and even taught the housemothers how to cook a German dish - Ratatouille. It was absolutely delicious and all the children and staff loved it - thank you Annika!
