Tulwap is going to see major development over the next few years as many donors have come forward. The 6 classroom project for the primary school is now complete

Met up with Robert, one of the students we are sponsoring. He types and eats with his feet.  He is very thankful for all that we do for his progress. He was reading an e mail I had sent.
