Building a Vocational centre and Safe House.
There is a final stage in full Registration of the school.
This year we have to build a permanent structure, i.e. brick not wood, in order to get full registration for the school.
It is intended to make the new building a combined Safe House and Vocational Centre - a new Safe House so that we do not have to continue paying rent and can improve the living conditions of the girls, so that each has her own bed equipped with a mosquito net and a Vocational Centre to provide practical training and a marketable skill for the children we are not able to sponsor.
During this trip we started the process, meeting with the builder in Kampala and again at school and we should finalise the plans by the end of April. At the moment the total costs are about £25,000. So we plan to start fundraising in earnest !
There are several ideas for concerts and musical events and we are looking at how we can present another Auction of Promises but if you have any ideas or proposals we are always open to suggestions! With the current rate of exchange the UK Pound goes a long way in Uganda: for example, to build the foundations for the 800m2 vocational centre is only - £3,200!
Every little bit helps, every little bit goes directly to the children.
Thank you again for all your help. You can see films and photos of our 2015 trip on Facebook
