Humanitarian support continues, sport starts to return and BPF Malawi's Mtema community centre construction project enters its final stages
BPF Malawi’s Mtema sports & education community centre construction project continues to make excellent progress as the build schedule nears completion. Consultant project manager Tim Mahoney and his team of staff on-site are focusing on Phase 2 of the clubhouse, including the canteen, kitchen, store room and two classrooms. The roof is soon to be installed. The manager’s house is complete, a vegetable garden has been planted, a tree regeneration initiative is underway and the grass on the sports pitch is being regularly mown as the rainy season has encouraged root growth.
Work continues on Phase 2 of the clubhouse, the pitch gets greener and greener, and communities receive coronavirus support through resources and education.
During the course of February, Juma’s team reached more children, re-introducing rugby sessions at seven schools. Breakfast and lunch was cooked for the children attending Saturday sessions. Practices included a range of activities: rugby, yoga and gender workshops from SHE Tanzania educators. Tanzanian coaches Jackson, Mandingo, Nassibu, Hassan and Lewis provided additional coaching support to Juma.
Coach (and former player) Mathayo was successful in his application to join Malya College in Mwanza. Coaches Baraka and Joshua are continuing their studies at the Umoja Centre.
In line with government restrictions, Juma and his team of committed sessional coaches lead rugby and yoga activities.
“The food program it is a good thing and it is so advantageous because most of the children come from low income families and, sometimes, even getting breakfast before coming to training is a challenge. Therefore, providing food helps by a large percent… Also, from my side, it is a sign that the charity cares a lot for the players.”
