Nicola's Dream

Why we need your help

You have arrived at this page because instead of bringing or sending floral tributes to our dear Nicola's funeral you want to help our her realise her dream of building a small, simple two roomed house for a poor family in Lukani Village, Kilimanjaro.

 

Nicola loved them and admired their endless happiness in the face of significant adversity.

Full details are below and also on our website.

Thank you for your support. 

Please help Nicola to realise her dream ...

 

Many of you will know that Nicola had a long and deep relationship with Tanzania. She     was instrumental in the creation of the Lukani Children's Centre. It is true to say that Nicola was an inspiration to many women. She was loved as much there as she was here.

 

Despite the success of the Children's Centre there was one thing that bothered her each time she visited. Nicola befriended the loveliest family but regretted their terrible living conditions. She often talked of her desire to build them a small, simple house to replace their shelter made of little more than rusting iron sheets, wood and plastic.

 

During the wet season it is hard to describe how bad it is for Mama Daniel, Bwana Jackson and their two sons Meshack and Exaud (who name themselves and Gonzalez and Chalice). Remarkably they are self-sufficient from their small 'shamba' (plot of land) but building a house is beyond them. The eldest son Emmanuel usually lives away so cannot help. 

 

Despite their poverty they are the most happy, kind and generous family you are likely to meet. They would be an inspiration to many families here.

 

So instead of bringing or sending floral tributes to Nicola's funeral please will you kindly consider helping realise Nicola's long held wish to build them a basic two roomed house?

 

If she's looking down at our amazing and slightly unusual request I know she'd be overjoyed with happiness. All the money we receive will go to the project in full.


Realising Nicola’s dream is completely separate from other fundraising and will be ring fenced. We are also delighted to accept cheques etc. We are content that this campaign fits with our 'charitable objects' and we can legitimately claim gift aid on donations.

Dearest Nicola - You achieved so much in your life, which was cut short far, far too early. We miss you very much, but let's hope Mama Daniel, Bwana Jackson and their two sons Meshack and Exaud will soon have a new home.
