Thank you for taking the time to visit our JustGiving page.

At the school which ACE supports at Rukongi there were two derelict classrooms. Our local contractor said that, although they were in a very bad condition, they could be repaired rather than being demolished. His plan was to remove the roof and start rebuilding from the ring beam. This has cost ACE £6,000 which represented a large saving on the current cost of a new building. The work should be completed in early April.

Now we need to fill the classrooms with desks and we would be so grateful if you could help us.

-  a desk for 4 pupils costs £25

-  a book cupboard costs £55

-  a teacher's desk (with drawers) and chair costs £60

We need 40 pupils' desks, 2 teacher's desks and 2 cupboards.

If you would like your desk marked with your name, or if you want to donate a desk in someone else's name, please go to our website at and go to the Desk Appeal page. This explains how that can be done.
