Make Change Possible e.V. is a non-profit organization, with the aim of getting people across nations and races to work together, as equal partners, by actively engaging in the local community’s life, in Namibia, Africa. To achieve that, the members of MCP have the power to initiate and execute their own projects, in the areas of sports, language, arts, or any other area of their personal interest. MCP provides them with the necessary tools and support, while giving them the ability to «own» their projects.
Here is our May newsletter, with updates from Mayana, plans for the summer, and fundraising news.
News from Mayana:We have received news from Mayana that they are still receiving strong rainfall. A lot of people, followed the advice of officials, planted their crop in November. As a result, this harvest is now endangered. Joseph informed us that he planted his crop in January and is still hopeful of a good harvest.
In early July we are taking the first Edu Trip with five youngsters and young adults from Mayana. The aim is to let them experience their own country and then have them share what they find out with the young people back home in Mayana. They were asked to run a project supporting Meho prior to the trip. Mission completed! They created a wall design at Meho (below). Congratulations on a great job!
We are still looking for magnifying glasses and simple, used digital cameras for this trip. Please contact us if you can help. Makechangepossible.firstname.lastname@example.org
