We love visitors. It gives our cultural group the chance to show off their dancing skills, and it enables us to teach people about the living situations of so many children in Katutura. So, when Matiti Safaris, a large and well-known Namibian tour operator, brought some of their guests to our new Centre yesterday, we were excited and grateful. We had a good visit and appreciate that these people made time to come to meet us. And they brought gifts! This is so very thoughtful! As everyone familiar with Family of Hope Services knows, our children always need clothing, school supplies, and food. A big thank you to the guides, Alex and Blandine, and to Lucie in Matiti’s office for making the visit possible.
The visit started out with the children singing the ‘welcome’ song, and then our cultural group danced. Then Abigail Bachopi, our founder and Managing Director, explained what we do help children get out of the cycle of poverty. Blandine, the beautiful tour guide with Matiti Safaris, translated for our guests.
Our guests sang Frère Jacques for the children.
For anyone interested in visiting Family of Hope Services we welcome guests on Wednesday and Friday afternoons from 14:30 to 15:30.
