Mokicco September 2019

In September 2013 – we had been here in Tanzania not one year – we were invited to a parish called Mwangaria. It was – and is – situated around 40 kilometers from where we live at the slopes of Kilimanjaro.  When we passed a village with huts and dirty shops I felt like a voice within me: “It is in this area that you will concentrate your work”.

 After some time – or if it was the same day . I met a Pentecostal pastor on the road and he directly on the spot offered me a plot. He had a vision of starting a work with orphan children and had had a contact in Europe but for some reasons this contact did not work. So now – I was offered that plot and on that plot we – step by step – built up a school for those of our orphan children who do not go to secondary schools for further studies. Just now we have 13 teenagers training there in sowing. But we do not have only that school in that area. May I mention for You what we until today are doing in Mwangaria and in the region called Kahe?

  1. Four family homes, totally 30 orphan children.
  2. This industry school (picture)
  3. Kindergarten. 20 poor children.
  4. Fish project for a poor Sunday School teacher.
  5. A new built house for a handicapped family. (picture)
  6. Sponsorship for a Lutheran evangelist.
  7. Sowing machine for a poor sick man.
  8. A new built house for a widow.
  9. Salaries for two poor evangelists.

Our children work MOKICCO has really made an impact in this area. This month we were offered a big plot for harvesting maize in another village there. We are just now building a house for a poor widow in Mwangaria. And from that village I recently heard that boys there have teams of football and one team is called MOKICCO! 15th of September I was called to preach in the parish of Kisange-Sangeni in this Kahe region. The parish is rather small and poor but now they try to build a Church there. As You can see on the picture they have not finished that project yet but they really try.

 What I felt inside in me in September 2013 was not my own imagination – it was the voice of the Holy Spirit: “You shall concentrate your work here”.

Thank You for standing with us in our future ministry in Kahe region and in other places in Tanzania!

Support from Football Club Neptunes Schiebroek

David Jas is a player at Neptunus Schiebroek. He’s a friend of Francesca, who joined us on the first trip to Tanzania. He arranged that Yourright received 2 complete sets of football kits for the children of SalaSala. These kits were delivered by Maria in August. In addition to this donation, David has now also set up a sponsorship campaign at Neptunus. How cool is that.

Looking back at Pasar Botanica

The Pasar Botanica took place on Saturday 31 August and Sunday 1 September in the Botanical Garden of the Technical University Delft. Originally an Indonesian event, but as a NGO with Delft as our location we were also allowed to decorate a colorful stand. We have been able to sell some things and children have colored their own Yourright Foundation backpack. Another objective these days was to get know in Delft. And we succeeded. We have had great conversations and hopefully this will result in new appointments such as benefit dinners and / or workshops.

Visit to Italy

Last week we have delivered donated clothes, stuffed animals and food to Esther and Maurizio from Kituo Cha Baba Oreste in Italy. As you might know, Maurizio is Italian and the family visits Italy every year. They will take all these goods to Kituo Cha Baba Oreste in Dar es Salaam next week.
We have also given a sewing machine with which they can sew items for sale there. Nicole taught Esther how the machine works and hair bands have already been made for sale in Italy and Tanzania. It was an exciting reunion.

Impact at Kituo Baba Cha Oreste

Our workshops in February are still being copied. We have left materials behind so that they can make cuddly toys, bags, bracelets etc. with the children themselves. How beautiful it is to see that they still get satisfaction from this. Proud of the impact we have.

Workshop/dinner and dinner buffet

Donderdag 21 juni

On Thursday June 21th we organized a workshop with dinner for a team from the Pameijer Foundation. Everyone made a nice cuddly toy and in between a delicious dinner was served. A number of people also bought something from our “shop”. Everyone went home with a nice toy.

On Thursday June 27th we organized a dinner buffet for 50 teachers and staff from Stanislas College in Rijswijk. We provided the buffet on location and everyone enjoyed Nicole’s cooking skills. We have also been able to tell about our work in Tanzania. These two activities have again generated some money for our account so we can do beautiful things on our next trip.

Mokicco June 2019

When I am writing this newsletter to You it is a rainy morning at Kilimanjaro. And that is not the only rainy morning now – we have had a long period of rain. Within two weeks I will be back in Sweden for preaching – and also informing about our children work and our expanding work to help poor people. It will be good to come to Sweden to get some hot weather! I could never imagine that I shall say so:  it will be good to leave Africa and go to Europe to get some warm weather!
When I look back to the last month (15.5-15.6) I remember this:

  1. Three built houses for widows and poor women.
  2. Repair of the village road, so that people easy, even if it is raining, can come to a hospital.
  3. Helping people with micro projects.
  4. Opening a new bookshop in Kikatiti.

If I summarize our work as it is today:

  1. 25 family homes where 140 children live. Daily food, lodge, school and concern.
  2. 40 poor children get lunch every school day.
  3. 15 students in our industry school.
  4. Three bookshops.
  5. 15 houses totally built.
  6. Sponsoring of three becoming evangelists.
  7. Repairing a village road.
  8. Helping albino children, deaf children and a lot of poor people.

We can do this because of You – thank You – bless you!


Worldfair Leiden

On Whit Monday we were present with a large booth at the World Fair at the Ethnology Museum in Leiden. Visitors roamed around the market, where the most beautiful handmade and fair trade products from all over the world could be found. Everyone enjoyed tastes from all over the world, watched and listened to various performances and demonstrations or participated in various creative workshops for young and old. Our stand was also well visited and we could tell a lot about our activities. It rained briefly at the end of the day, but that didn’t matter to the visitors.
Gre helped us this day by enthusiastically selling many puppets made by Mrs. Andriesse. Our hair bands also went well.
In short, another successful day with which we have given our Foundation a little more publicity.


Africa Now Festival

On Thursday May 30th we were present with a stand at the Africa Now Festival in the Afrika Museum in Berg en Dal. On Wednesday evening we had already packed the car and left early in the morning at 7.30 am. Once there, the tent was set up and the tables decorated. It is a festival full of music, workshops and activities for everyone and all ages. During this day we have been able to bring our Foundation to the attention of a large audience that is interested in Africa. We have also been able to sell items (which are also in our web store). Many charity organizations were present. It was a nice (long) day. We were home again at 9 p.m.

Mokicco May 2019






Last month I visited Geita and Katoro in the Lake Victoriaregion. There we have four family homes, we give every school day food to 40 poor children in a school (picture) and from there we pay school fees for some albinochildren. So it is necessary sometimes to visit the MOKICCO-people and children there – especially when we have got the praise from the government in that region that MOKICCO has the best children work there.

  When I was there I was presented to a MOKICCO office there. I got a little bit upset asking: “Is our money from good givers going to hire an office?” Then they calmed me down and said: “No, this we do from our own money but from the money we get monthly to help needy children we have got some money left, so we decided to open a place, from where we twice a week could give out maize, sugar and wheat a.s.o. to some poor families.”.  I calmed down and then they took me to meet some of these people who get help from this extra money. One, Stella, had walked without problem for operation, which however failed completely and she became handicapped for life and unable to help her children. Then I got the possibility to meet Rosa and Daniel Masanja – an old couple.  Their home was attacked by robbers, they cut off    her right hand and then tore down their house. Now they live in a small room, offered to them by a neighbor. When I left all these children and people in Geita I felt warm inside, that we – that You – could be a small help for these deprived people. Thank You!
