How can you help page for more details. There will also be updates on the

2-05-06 the money transfer to Bere Brothers, Layers for the project in Zimbabwe, has worked. We now have working financial link between our account here in the UK and the account in Zimbabwe. It means that we can now get school fees and money for projects there when we want to without having to use personal delivery to get the money where we want it to be. Enormous thanks to Tino Bere, Johane and their financial adviser Patience. It is worth noting that Tino and Johane give there time freely to support the work of the project.
The first of many video clips from the 2004 visit. Access through the
Visits page This first is created from stills using MS Photo Story 3 (free to download from MS). 2 resolutions available. High
