The family Chamaeleonidae are a distinctive and highly specialized clade of lizards. They are distinguished by their parrot-like zygodactylous feet, their separately mobile and stereoscopic eyes, their very long, highly modified, and rapidly extrudable tongues, their swaying gait, and the possession by many of a prehensile tail, crests or horns on their distinctively shaped heads, and the ability of some to change color.

Well apart from the parrot-like feet, very long tongue a prehensile tail we have the same ability to change color. Mozambique is a unique and colorful place – including personalities.
With everyone helping us from so far as Cape Town, South Africa here is how some colour was brought back to Mozambique:
Some of our orphan houses got a new paint job! These houses usually hosts a family (mother – widow) and three orphans. They work as a normal family unit would.
Groups visiting from South Africa took the task on their shoulders to colour-in the world of our orphan families.

Our Ladies program, Simukai (which is a Shona word meaning “Stand Up!”) is still very busy after the harvesting season. They are currently busy embroidering designs for Mozambican aprons, handbags and napkins. And off course mothers and their children are inseparable – so also “not paying” attention as kids sometimes do.

There are currently 400 ladies in different schools around the country which are attending similar schools. Each school has their own monitor and teacher and receives their training at the mission base.These programs will allow ladies to empower themselves and find a means to support their families. All proceeds of their products goes back into the hands of the ladies in the program. And in the process …… they keep colouring in the world in Mozambique.
