Very Scary Update

12 Jan

It is with a heavy heart that we announce that the washrooms at Chombo collapsed and are no longer usable. Thankfully this occurred overnight and no students were on campus to be harmed. However, this leaves 400 students without any toilets. This will significantly increase the risks of outbreaks of diseases such as cholera and yellow fever.  While we are so happy that this happened overnight, and we avoided a tragedy, we cannot stress enough the importance of getting the school finished to avoid further potentially deadly incidents. This is EXACTLY why we felt it necessary to help this school renovate and become a safe learning space. We are asking that the community members give what little they have to spare to help with the costs to rebuild the washrooms, we hope that this will encourage anyone who has been putting off donating, or choosing between us and another organization to choose ours. This needs to be fixed as soon as possible!


Happy New Year

8 Jan

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a great holiday season. With all of your help and some successful Facebook Fundraisers, we were able to send the money to complete the second classroom at Chombo Primary School!  We can’t wait to see what this year has  in store for us. We cannot do anything we do without the help and support of our donors (You!). We are ever grateful to you for that!

First Classroom is Finished!

The first classroom is all complete! As you can see it needs a good cleaning after all of that work, but everything from the ceiling to the floors is complete and painted! Such a huge difference! Now we will begin fundraising to complete the next room.
