Following discussions with Gedeli B School, our projects this year have been finalised. Thanks to all of the fundraising activities that have taken place over the past year, and your generous support, we can fund:

  • The installation of a 10,000 litre water tower, so that the children have ready-access to fresh drinking water (this is in addition to the 3000 litre tank we installed in 2013)
  • 2 x braille machines, for the blind/sight impaired children
  • Sanitary towels for the girls
  • 5 x sewing machines and 2 x embroidery machines for the special needs children in order to teach them some skills so that they may be able to support themselves in the future
  • 10 x magnifying glasses for the sight impaired children
  • Puberty booklets for Standard Grade 7 (tbc)
  • Sports field equipment, this will be either goal posts or basketball posts
  • Art murals for classroom walls
  • Pencil cases for the special needs children with specific items to help them
