Andiamo Youth Cooperative Trust (AYCT) continue to receive lessons of love from both people who died long time ago and those that are alive.
Today 1 December 2012 Mariana Mbendera and Paulo James received a bicycle each from the AYCT founding trustee, Fr. Mario Pacifici at a short function held at Nankhombe house in the presence of some notable figures of AYCT and the Executive Director Andrew Galeta.
Fr. Mario disclosed that the bicycles have been bought by money donated by Margherita Betti, a niece to late Fr Tarcisio Betti, a Montfort Missionary.
“A good tree will produce good fruits,” Fr. Mario said this probably referring to late Fr. Betti who though died some years ago, yet his niece can still think of donating to Malawi where her uncle worked tirelessly for Malawians mainly in Mangochi.
Speaking when she received the bicycle, Mariana said she never expected to have her own bicycle now.
Andrew Galeta asked the recipients of the bicycles to take care of this “early Christmas gift”.
“You should count yourself lucky because out of all the members of Andiamo Youth Cooperative Trust, you were chosen to receive this gift,” said Galeta.
