tm Frontiers Foundation News Update January 2013 Where there’s a well, there’s a way! Frontiers Foundation successfully brings water to Ngwezi B village in Zambia After a year of research, planning, preparation, a half marathon and gruelling triathlon, we were finally able to raise enough funds to undertake the Frontiers Foundation’s first project – the drilling of a borehole in a small, remote village called Ngwezi B in Zambia. Laden down with donated books and essential school supplies for the children of Ngwezi B, Trustees Ray Withers and Charlotte Ashton headed out to Zambia in the summer of 2012. This truly life-changing trip saw Ray and Charlotte travel from the capital of Zambia, Lusaka, down to Mazabuka, the nearest town to Ngwezi B. During their 4 day visit, they met with the inspirational Wilson and his team at SAPEP (Simalelo AIDS Peer Education Program) as well as volunteers Sasha and Vincent from UK charity PEPAIDS who undertake vital teacher training and promote women’s rights in this region of Zambia. Ray and Charlotte certainly got stuck in with the drilling of the borehole, chopping down trees and clearing the land as well as meeting with village leader George and being shown around his impressive herb garden. With the hand pump now installed and water flowing freely at Ngwezi B, George has been able to expand his garden and grow healthy foods for his village. The Frontiers Foundation keep in regular touch with our friends in Zambia and sent a festive donation to Ngwezi B for George to purchase some essential seeds and gardening tools.

Frontiers Foundation News Update January 2013 Kids in Kenya: Transforming the Ket Wangi orphanage Following on from the success of our first project in Zambia, the Frontiers Foundation Trustees selected our second project of 2012 - Kids in Kenya: Transforming the Ket Wangi orphanage. Recommended by our friends at Together4Africa, we wanted to support Emily Odera, the Mother of Ket Wangi, in her quest not only to maintain but expand and improve her orphanage, Ket Wangi on the shores of Lake Victoria in Western Kenya. Ket Wangi’s needs were great in all extents but we committed to building a block of 3 toilets with 2 sinks following the collapse of the old block earlier that year due to a landslide and 3 classrooms dedicated to education. The total funds required to complete both projects were £7,000 and so we set about fundraising. Charlotte got her trainers back on and completed another half marathon in London but it was the charity auction held at the annual Overseas Property Professional (OPP) Gala Dinner in October 2012 which made this project a reality. Hosted by guest auctioneer for the evening, Paul Owen, industry colleague and Owner of The Clear Path Company, the charity auction was a welcome addition to the prestigious OPP Awards of Excellence presentation ceremony. The Trustees were overwhelmed with the generosity of the lots donated which included dinner in a top London restaurant, tickets to the Cartier polo, a professional photo shoot, signed novels, a weekend break in Cornwall, supercar track day and luxury holidays in Turkey / Florida and a French chateau! With spirits high and the wine flowing, bidding was prolific and at some points competitive but with each lot vastly exceeding its reserve, the target of £7,000 was smashed by the end of the evening. Exceeding all expectations and with a staggering £7,750 raised, works began immediately at Ket Wangi with the foundations for the toilet block dug out within weeks and progress made on the classroom construction. 2012 ended on a high with pictures being sent of the toilet block completed and awaiting its final coat of paint and only plastering works remaining on the classrooms. Ray and Charlotte have been in regular communication with Emily Odera and the children of Ket Wangi and are delighted to see how quickly things have changed for the better at Ket Wangi. They have allocated extras funds for teacher’s salaries and new mattresses for the children and plan to officially open the toilet block and classrooms when they visit in the next few months. From everyone at the Frontiers Foundation, we’d like to say a very big thanks to everyone who donated to the charity auction, the generous bidders and indeed Annie O’Connor of Together4Africa who was instrumental in making this project happen Get involved!
