Habari ya Mikembo Octobre 2014

– 352 pupils in kindergarten
– 55 pupils in primary school
– 22 pupils in sewing school

37 registered pupils and only 41% of the school fees collected, due mainly to poor organization.
22 sponsored pupils in primary school and only 1 in high school. We really need to find additional sponsors…
