Our name is Derek and Diane Edwards and we live in Filey, North Yorkshire, England. We were born in Leicestershire, England and spent nineteen years living in South Africa. We are now retired and try to involve ourselves in our local community.
Derek is a member of Rotary and it was through this organisation that we learned of a project to help a poor and isolated community who live on the island of Ukerewe, which is located in the middle of Lake Victoria, in Tanzania.
We felt that we wanted to get involved in this project and by doing so, to help these people who are less fortunate than ourselves. Also, by helping them, we can empower them to help themselves.
