SERVE’s work with the Flamboyant Special School –
SERVE’s work with Luyobolola National School
Throughout 2020 and 2021, we have also helped the school with a farm project in the nearby parish farm. Three
hectares of sunflower seed and two hectares of maize were sown with the help of SERVE funding. It is hoped that the
harvest from this and future harvests will go towards the school’s feeding programme. The school offers a feeding
programme in the mornings for students that consists of a maize porridge with ground nuts. Sadly, for the students
there, this breakfast could be the only meal they could have all day for some of those children.

Quotes from participants
An entrepreneurship training workshop will be taking place in May 2021. By the end of this session, the
youth participants will feel that they can run their own
small business, which they never thought possible

Why should you support SERVE in Assumption Parish now and into the future?
COVID 19 has had an undeniable impact on SERVE and the communities. Due to the constraints of the pandemic, we
are unable to go out into the public for our Flip Flop Appeal in order to raise funds.
Our solidarity with Mazabuka reminds us of our responsibility to support them in overcoming financial and social
constraints that they experience in addition to this health crisis.
Our Flip Flop Appeal to you is to join our vision with a one-off donation or pledge a monthly gift and become a
regular donor to support SERVE and continue the work of supporting and empowering the vulnerable members of
the Assumption Parish.
