Ranger communities live in challenging environments and it has been terrific to have received donations from USA’s Glenn Vincent and his colleagues Royal and Karen for the establishment of a ranger children’s playground and ranger wives’ netball field at Mkanga Field HQ, Chewore South. Especially during COVID-19 pandemic shutdowns, these facilities have been put to excellent daily use.
The playground was manufactured by Tashinga Initiative’s team led by Catmore Gidion, and erected on-site in a secure position within the housing complex chosen by Area Manager and his team. Also funded through Glenn’s longstanding support for Chewore South was a Ranger Canteen with ablutions at the soccer field and an adjacent Storeroom. Both now provide much-needed food storage facilities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
