FORTY-two orphans, under the care of the Tembari Children’s Care (TCC) Inc, will attend regular school this year after foundation WeCare PNG paid for their school fees.
“WeCare has shouldered more than K7,000 in school fees of our kids this year,” TCC founder Penny Sagembo said.
Mrs Sagembo said TCC recently received a cheque for K2,600 for the school fees of 26 children enrolled in different levels at the Ward Strip Elementary School at Gordon.
Another K5,000 will pay for the school fees of 16 other children in 11 other schools around Port Moresby.
General manager John Whitfield said Port Moresby-based Pacific Towing Ltd is also supporting the orphanage’s nutrition programme with a counterpart monthly grant of K400 to help improve the children’s nutrition.
