Mandela's Passing, Our Challenge - Bishop Mambo

E-mail Print PDF

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

The Nyamphande Board of Trustees and the entire Nyamphande family wish to sincerely express our heartfelt condolences to the Mandela family and the entire nation of South Africa on the passing of that true and great son of Africa, the true icon of justice and freedom from all sorts of domination.

For 67 years Nelson Mandela devoted his life to the service of humanity – as a human rights lawyer, a prisoner of conscience, an international peacemaker and the first democratically elected president of a free South.

Nyamphande will stand committed to furthering Mandela’s work. As we put him to rest, let us remember all his great works and how he has brought us all together. Mandela has shown us that we have the power in us to change things for the better. May we, therefore, pick up from where he left and continue being goodwill ambassadors to the poor and the hurting.

We have lost such a great liberator who gave hope to many orphans and the underprivileged. Not only did this man fight for people’s freedom, but he also fought for social justice.
“OVERCOMING POVERTY IS NOT A GESTURE OF CHARITY IT’S AN ACT OF JUSTICE” These are some of Mandela’s words that will echo throughout our minds as we fight the many challenges that we face in our communities.

Like many other nonprofit making organizations in Africa we have had our fair share of turbulence but we have kept our focus and our goal, which is to protect the welfare of the children that are hurting and in need.

 

The main challenging problem that Nyamphande Orphanage faces is funding. With the increase in the number of children that need help from the institution we find ourselves burdened with over stretched budgets.  As an organization for orphans and the underprivileged in our society we cannot close our doors on those that need our help or be selective over whom we can and cannot help.

Nyamphande strongly believes that every child has a right to a brighter future regardless of background. We believe that a child should not be deprived of his education because of poverty or the background of where the child comes from.

Because of the many funding challenges that Nyamphande has been going through, it has left the institution handicapped in many areas. Our regular buildings maintenance has been on the decline. Our board members have been lending a hand in this area, and most of the broken windows have been replaced by new ones.

Nyamphande has also lost a number of volunteer teachers who had devoted their precious time because they believed in the worthy cause of safe guarding the children’s futures. The teachers also had pressing problems with their families whom they had sacrificed as well, and children who needed clothing and feeding. Some of the paid volunteer teachers, however, took us to court demanding for their allowances.  The courts have so far ruled that we have to pay the 95 thousand Kwacha owed to them by the end of January, 2014.

The government has also promised us more government teachers who will be paid by government but in order for us to get government teachers we will need to have teacher’s houses which are at the moment occupied by the teachers that are demanding for their unpaid allowances.

We are, therefore, now requesting immediate assistance from all our well-wishers so that our children can have teachers in their classes.

Some of the other challenges that Nyamphande is going through is infrastructure. Nyamphande is in need of houses for teachers, a new and bigger Clinic to accommodate its ever increasing population, we also need to finish off the Church building which will need about $10,000 the Church building will also be used as an assembly hall for the students, the high school also needs $8,000 to finish. It has become a big challenge to have more class rooms since we have now gone up to grade 10.

The grade 10 class started because of the number of children who passed their grade 9 exams to grade 10 but found it financially difficult to go to schools outside the community and so we had to take up the challenge. For those who wish to visit us, please you can do so even at a short notice.

WE HAVE NOT BECAUSE WE ASK NOT.
