Getting ready for a break…

Welcome to the blog!

After this weekend Friends of Pakati is taking a break from blogging for a short time. This is so we can do some work on the website & other things. We will post occasional items on various social media platforms however.

One of the ‘other things’ will be to make progress on becoming a registered charity, as we want to tap into the funds which become accessible from various sources.

More photos from my recent visit..

Mrs Maenzanise, Head of Mapanga Primary school, has been sending me some photos from my trip when Friends of Pakati went to her school. Here is a selection of them:

As you can see, it was a very memorable visit, ending a great week in Ward 14 at all 5 schools including the Primaruly & Secondary schools at both Pakati and Chanetsa. Much more on the trip can be found in earlier posts here:

Mrs Maenzanise has also been to the wonderful Victoria Falls, on the Zambezi Riverwhich separates Zimbabwe & Zambia. Here is a short clip & a photo she sent me:

Keep an eye put on our social media presence during these next 2-3 weeks, as Friends of Pakati’s weekly blog will return mid-December!
