I uke 25 ble det støpt gulv i klasserommene på skolen vår. Du verden for en forbedring! Bildene taler for seg.
Slik så det ut inne i klasserommene før støpingen.
Jordgulv i regntida fungerer ikke særlig bra. Ungene ble syke av å gå og sitte i gjørma.
All the water needed for the casting had to be transported in cans by car.
This is what it now looks like! The new floor will keep the water out.
Both teachers and pupils are very happy with the result.
It looks good outside as well!
Our sincere thanks to everybody for contributing to making this possible.
Rainy season in Kenya now. Our school has earthen floors. The teachers report more illness than usual due to wet and muddy floors. The learning situation is unbearable. Charles has sent us a budget showing costs for casting new floors in the four classrooms. We have transferred kr. 5000.- to cover materials and labour costs for casting and some improvements to walls and ceilings.
Planned start of this job in week 23-24.
We have also started work towards our next goal: Wages for the teachers at the Oasis of Hope school. Kr. 6000.- extra per month will give all the teachers a decent pay. They deserve this because of the formidable job they are doing for the children there. Until we have sufficient means to cover this, the teachers get a monthly remuneration as a token of our gratitude and a signal of our intention to keep them as teachers at our school.
We need more regular donors, giving us sufficient means to cover this every month.
Help us reach our goal! Your contribution means a lot to many!
We have reached our first goal: All the kids now get a meal on the days when they attend school.
Many thanks to everybody who has contributed to this!
