News from the Emusoi Centre,Tanzania, where the CGEF (formerly CCLEF) has sponsored a number of girls.
The following picture shows six new graduates, along with their letters of thanks. They are all waiting for their exam results which will be announced mid-February 2016.
One of the girls, Nasiyanda, has asked to stay at Emusoi to await the results because she fears being hassled at home to marry. These girls receive a lot of pressure to get married because their families think they have finished school. Hopefully, all these girls will be able to go on to advanced level studies.
A wonderful success story so far, and a testament to the hard work of everyone at the Emusoi Centre. Congratulations to our girls!
On 2 December 2015, the CCL Commonwealth Fair organisers welcomed guests to their traditional thank you party at Marlborough House in London.
This year's fair was another successful event and CCL President, Mrs Nalini Paranavitane presented our Hon Treasurer Ms Judith Fisher with a cheque from the CCL to the Education Fund for £8,000, which included the proceeds of the raffle and the first stage payment from the 2015 CCL Commonwealth Fair profits.
