Renovations to Masenge's Bungalow

Published 02 December 2012

We now need to renovate the bungalow of Felix and Naomi Masenge as Naomi approaches her retirement in June 2013. Perhaps you remember that the Masenge's gave it up to start Tuishime School in 2001. Since then it has variously been used for classrooms, storage space, library, office, entertaining and provided accomodation for many people. It is now needed by Felix and Naomi because the house they currently rent will need to be vacated on retirement. The condition of the bungalow has deteriorated and needs to be renovated and made comfortable as a home. Hope for Tanzania will make a donation in December for 60% of the costs and provide further funds when able to do so. It is fitting to return the gift that Felix and Naomi gave to start the School at a time when the School is thriving. We are full of optimism that there are even better times ahead.
