New friends for our project

by Sue Pomeroy in Uncategorized

A few weeks ago we received information that we have been awarded a grant towards two of our projects. Our new friends are the Openwork Foundation and they have given us the money to refurbish the Pre-School room at Kabwata and to complete the furnishing of the Lifeskills Room at Chilenje.

This will make a fantastic difference to the young children and the older students in our partner schools.

    This dark and dingy room will have its roof raised to meet the new Zambian Government requirements. A new ceiling will be installed, proper lighting and windows fitted, the walls plastered and the whole room repainted. We hope then to put carpet tiles on the floor for the little children to sit on, to go with the furniture that we have already sent out. We are asking Chico to complete this work on our behalf.

This newly decorated Lifeskills Room will have two new cookers, equipment for teaching cookery and other lifeskills and some new furniture to make it a nice room for the students to work in. Here they will be able to learn the skills that they will need to help them become independent people and be able to have discussions and learn together.

Thank you so much to the Openwork Foundation. We really appreciate your generosity.
