Karlsvogna Children and Development Centre is ready to take in children from February 2013. A committee is in charge of choosing children for the centre based on their need to stay there. This is to ensure that the chosen ones are the ones that need it the most. Most of the children will either be orphans or from homes with no follow-up and they are extremely poor.
Read the story behind about founders, Siri Fjeld-Nilesen og Thomas Sletvold who donated their wedding gifts to build the centre (in Norwegian only). A dream has come true!
The onions produced in the schools are selling for 20-30 shillings. They harvest a lot. To compare, a day salary in Gombolo is around 100 shillings. (6.5 NOK or 1 USD). The income is used to purchase food for the children in the primary schools. 1 kg white mais costs almost the same as one onion (38 shillings). Earlier, we fundraised cash for school-food, now the schools buy the food themselves. Thanks to all of you who are helping us changing the world for so many people, especially the small children!
This summer we’ve funded about 60.000 NOK (10.000 USD) to lay pipes to the Birth Clinic in Katangi, Kenya. The clinic serves about 50 000 people. Here you can read Anne’s blog about the project.

Who is Aid in Action?
More people in Norway have during the previous year worked to develop and build Aid in Action as an organisation. In addition to Anne Louise, who is the leader, volunteers have taken responsibility for the economy, website, IT, movies and media, sponsorship, and the development of children’s centre. We have become a real “Team Action”, who works well together, and we’re growing! We expect to see and do many good things in the future, and we can’t wait to start new projects!
Read about our projects here and our dream for Aid in Action in the future!
