“I trust you are well. I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the MCT brothers and sisters for your unwavering support to the women, the school and the community at large. Your generosity and commitment have played a significant role in our success and we couldn’t be more grateful.

We are excited to share  that we recently celebrated a very successful graduation for four classes, with our students moving on to the next level of their education and personal growth. It’s a testament to the positive impact your support has had on the community.

As we officially close our school for the year ,we are busy preparing the classrooms for the new year ahead.

We’d like to extend an invitation to you to join us in our annual Christmas celebrations, where we can come together to bring joy to the elderly and vulnerable members of our community by donating to the woman’s kitty, helping us make this Christmas extra special for those in need.

Once again , thank you for your ongoing support and for being an integral part of our community. We look forward to seeing you someday.

Every Blessings to you all.

I should also let you know Kenya had a lovely time with King Charles and Queen Camilla over the past one week.

With warmest regards,

Ester – Wanjohi”

Support for Ecudare is still, in 2023, ongoing,  in July this year,  a 'Songs, Steawberries, and Sparkle' event was held:-

"Thank you to everyone who went and/or donated to the ECUDARE Songs, Strawberries, and Sparkles Fundraiser on July 1st! We are delighted to let you know that because of your generosity, the ECUDARE committee has been able to send Esther £1,000 to help in continuing her work!"

For more information see the Ecudare page of the MCT website.

A letter from Esther in late June 2021 with news of how they all are.

Firstly the vaccination programme is very slow. A lot of the families in the village have not had the vaccine. They have had some people who have had the virus and been ok and some have died. I don't have any numbers. The women are doing ok and some
have managed to put up their stalls in the market and sell vegetables and eggs etc. However a lot have not and the food kitty is at rock bottom and so they are badly in need of funds again just to provide food packs to the very needy and vulnerable.
On a brighter note the school has been back functioning and the 2020 class have done very well and some have gained admission to various High Schools. The main problem is they have to pay to go to High school and they do not have funds for this. They are doing as much as possible to raise funds to enable minimum entry fee for them.
She finishes her letter with
"Every blessing to you. We cherish every support that we get from MCT. May our Father in heaven bless you and protect you all from the effects of Covid 19. "

The Ecudare committee met for the first time together in a garden this week and it was marvellous to actually meet together again after so many Zooms !
We are sending a £1.000 to Esther this week and so that will help with their food fund right now. We recently received £1.087.75p from the gift aid which gave us the £1.000 to send.
