Our Junior Church Nativity Play is a much-anticipated part of the St Andrew’s calendar, with carols being practised in October and children being coaxed to speak their lines louder and more slowly for weeks before the performance.
This year is no exception, and we look forward to welcoming parents, extended family, and friends to our play this coming Sunday, 10th December at 10.30am.
All monies collected at our Nativity Play on the 10th December will be donated to the Hanne Howard Fund (HHF), a hands-on, family oriented grassroots charity that was founded by Hanne and Ted Howard, who have a personal link with St Andrew’s Church, Zurich. Hanne and Ted work directly with a Kenyan community-based organization in Lenana slum, Nairobi. Their mission is to achieve self-reliance for orphaned and vulnerable slum children and youth through education, care and training. So far, 21 HHF children have transformed their lives and are gainfully employed today!
Over a hundred children have been rescued from the dangers of life on the streets where malnutrition, TB and high-risk HIV transmission are prevalent. Education is the key priority, and every HHF child is sent to school and given the opportunity of a solid academic foundation that will lead to gaining marketable skills and sustained employment.
HHF provides a combination of love, good nutrition, medical care, recreation and training to develop hard skills like literacy and IT expertise, as well as soft skills like discipline, respect and teamwork. In doing so, the children they support become self-reliant, which is their ultimate measure of success.
