This latest issue contains details of various new projects that are now underway, recently completed projects plus the latest fund-raising activities.
We are in the process of raising funds for the following three projects all in the West Coast Region:
Solar power water pump
Help has been requested to provide a solar water pump system for Kanuma Basic Cycle School which has 10 villages within its catchment area. The pump will aid their existing well, water tanks and solar panels. Having these facilities will mean the school will be able to embark on gardening, tree planting and a banana plantation, which will in turn generate money for the school.
We need to raise £1,994 in support of this project.
Renovating staff accommodation
Staff accommodation is in need of an update at Sanyang Lower Basic School, the amount needed for this project is £1,291. This will be a real morale booster for current teaching staff at the school.
Kalagi Lower Basic School
A vegetable garden and orchard wall is required to replace inadequate fencing at Kalagi Lower Basic School. Gardening and farming are part of extra curriculum activities, along with annual tree planting exercises. The amount needed is £1,500.
