    Nandi School Project

    (In English & Deutsche)


    This continuing project is now going into its third year. With your help we have accomplished so much, including the refurbishment of a derelict building into two large classrooms one of which is being used as a temporary staff room and the building of two further classrooms and an administration block.

    Earlier this year we were just unable to totally finish the Admin block, but we did complete the two classrooms which have been in use since March. The Admin block is the first two story building in the area, and although we managed to put the joists for the floor in, we couldn't afford the floor.

    We are going back out in 2020 for two months to try and get the whole of Phase 2 completed this is what is required.

    • The timber flooring

    • Staircase and balustrading

    • Complete plastering to the top floor

    • Glass put in windows

    • Ground floor to have oxidized finish

    • Painting inside and outside of all walls and windows

    • Veranda completion

    • Offices fitted with desks, chairs and cupboards

    • Staff room fitout tables chairs cupboards

    • Library fitout with shelving

    • Electrics installed throughout phase 2

    • Re-laying of screed floors in refurbed classrooms 1 and 2

    • Repainting of inside and outside of class 1 and 2

    • Rainwater harvesting, gutters, drainage storage tank.

    We are estimating this will cost in the region of £2000-2500.

    All this work is addition to the sponsorship program we are running which now has 75 Children sponsored and enjoying schooling and a meal which wasn’t afforded by parents before. So we are pretty proud of our achievements and of course really grateful for your amazing help and donations.

    Dieses fortgesetzte Projekt geht nun in sein drittes Jahr. Mit Ihrer Hilfe haben wir so viel erreicht, einschließlich der Sanierung eines verlassenen Gebäudes in zwei große Klassenzimmer, von denen einer als temporärer Personalraum genutzt wird, und dem Bau von zwei weiteren Klassenzimmern und einem Verwaltungsblock.

    Zu Beginn dieses Jahres konnten wir den Admin-Block nicht vollständig beenden, aber wir haben die beiden Klassenräume, die seit März in Gebrauch sind, fertiggestellt. Der Admin-Block ist das erste zweistöckige Gebäude in der Gegend, und obwohl wir es geschafft haben, die Balken für den Boden einzubauen, konnten wir uns den Boden nicht leisten.

    Wir werden im Jahr 2020 für zwei Monate zurückkehren, um zu versuchen, die gesamte Phase 2 abzuschließen. Dies ist das, was erforderlich ist.

    • Der Holzboden

    • Treppe und Geländer

    • Verputzen Sie das Dachgeschoss vollständig

    • Glas in Fenstern

    • Erdgeschoß oxidiert

    • Malen innerhalb und außerhalb aller Wände und Fenster

    • Fertigstellung der Veranda

    • Büros mit Schreibtischen, Stühlen und Schränken

    • Personalraum-Ausstattungstische Stühle Schränke

    • Ausstattung der Bibliothek mit Regalen

    • In Phase 2 installierte Elektrik

    • Verlegen von Estrichböden in den umgebauten Klassenräumen 1 und 2

    • Innen- und Außenlackierung der Klassen 1 und 2

    • Regenwassernutzung, Dachrinnen, Abwasserspeicher.

    Wir schätzen, dass dies zwischen 2000 und 2500 GBP kosten wird.

    All diese Arbeiten ergänzen das Patenschaftsprogramm, an dem 75 Kinder teilnehmen, die Patenschaft übernehmen und Spaß am Schulbesuch haben. Wir sind also ziemlich stolz auf unsere Leistungen und natürlich sehr dankbar für Ihre großartige Hilfe und Ihre Spenden

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Great people make things happen

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
