Two poultry projects, a new classroom AND the roof for two classrooms in Zimbabwe and Kenya
That's what has happened over the last couple of months. The first project was the poultry project in Kenya. This is another sustainable project that has the potential to generate income for the school for many years. if it works as we hope then we will extend the size of the project on the school grounds. We are looking at the possibility of including rabbits as part of the same basic project.
The maize and beans harvest has gone well and should be sold in the next few weeks. this will pay for the same land to be cultivated next year and the profit go into the running of the school.
The second poultry project is at the school we have been working with for a number of years in Mutare, Zimbabwe. There the project has even more potential to raise much needed funds for the school. They have a pair of classrooms which are almost complete except one thing. The roof! They needed 2,300 to buy the roofing sheets and someone has just (Monday 18th October) donated exactly that amount to pay for the roofing materials needed.
The latest work is the building of a new pair of classrooms at Moi's Bridge, Kenya. Some support from the local council has been offered towards building two classrooms. Currently we have only been able to raise enough money to build the first of the pair. We hope that the generosity of the festive season will see the funds needed raised in time for the start of the new year.
Through the Alternative Gift catalogue we hope that we will get the equipment and furniture for the classrooms by Christmas.
