Thank you again for taking the time to visit my blog and to read it.
A few posts ago I wrote about a beautiful charity that I like to help out with called Made With Hope which was founded by the lovely Eleanor. I just wanted to give you guys a bit of an update with their progress since my last post and help spread the work about the wonderful work that they do.
I mentioned in my previous post that Made With Hope were now looking for funds to help build a school along with the orphanage that they have already built. I'm really pleased to say that building work on the school has now started and the locals are working really hard on building the school. Of course none of this is possible without people donating generously towards the cause and the hard work that goes on behind the scenes from Eleanor as well as her volunteers who have worked amazingly hard to make the charity as successful as it is today.
Below are some of the pictures of the locals who are helping helping to build the school at the moment:
I have to say I think this is a really special achievement by Made With Hope because it takes a lot of hard work, dedication, time effort and commitment to try and make a dream a reality. But I guess you could say these pictures are showing that dreams can become realities. First of all it was Eleanor's dream that she could help to provide the facilities that these young children need in order to try and establish a fulfilling life for themselves and to give them opportunities they probably never thought they could have. Secondly it is the dream of the children themselves to be given those opportunities because a school and an education can help a child better themselves in the long run. Education is very important and I really like the fact the Made With Hope are striving so hard to help provide this!
Another thing that Made With Hope has introduced since my last blog post is an orphan sponsor scheme which has worked really well so far. Made With Hope have managed to secure 24 donors to help sponsor all the children they have in their care. This includes helping to provide for their food, accommodation and education. The sponsorship scheme has also created the chance to get to know the orphans that we have sponsored and this can be done by sending letters to them as well as presents. Eleanor is planning to visit the orphanage within the next month or 2 and lots of the donor have given presents and letters to the children they sponsor. Below is picture of Eleanor and the team who have packaged all the lovely gifts together.
This project is another aspect of Made With Hope that I know Eleanor and the team have put a lot of effort into and it is fantastic to know that all the orphans have been sponsored. From this picture I think that is also very nice to see other children involved too!
Another project that Made With Hope have undertaken since my last article was working with a class full of 8 year olds at Hudsfield Primary School in which they did a project. The class did a sponsored walk for Made With Hope's Water is Life project. The children of Y3/4 at Hurdsfield Primary school in Macclesfield, Cheshire did a sponsored walk carrying a 2 litre bottle of water to represent the struggles some children have ...collecting and carrying water each day in Africa. Their amazing efforts raised £150 to buy a water filter to provide clean safe drinking water for children in the rural village of Nadasoito, Tanzania, Africa. Not only have these children done something amazing and raised £150 for Made With Hope, I really like this project because of what it can teach our children here in the UK. It teaches us love, compassion, empathy, not to take things we have for granted and to always look after those who are less fortunate then ourselves. If we can teach these qualities to our children then I hope the world will become a more prosperous, peaceful and better place.

Another project they have done is about Sanitation which can be a huge problem as they can cause fatal diseases such as Diarrohea and for small children whose bodies are not strong enough to fight them this can make it even harder. To try and prevent them from contacting these diseases Made With Hope have built a washroom containing 4 toilets and 4 showers which gives the children a safe and private place to use.

I didn't mention this on my previous post but one of the things the I really like about Made With Hope is the name of the charity itself but in particular the word hope. Lots of people need hope at one point or other in their lives and hope is what a beautiful charity like Made With Hope is continuously offering. Through the hard work of Eleanor, the volunteers and staff in Tanzania and importantly our supporters. hope is what they are all helping to give the children. Hope for a better life for them in future, hope they will achieve their dreams and hope for an education. I believe every good action undertaken by the charity. I believe that hope is at the forefront of every action this charity carries out.
