Improving the school

Working on the playground

When the tanker was empty, we transferred some of our school waste to the ball field:)
Flooding the field with natural fertilizer.

One of the buses needed repair
The bus is ready to roll!

Soon time to plant crops!

It was normally Ojung’u’s job to prepare the tractor for the planting season, but with his passing this summer, it did not happen. But we will not fail him, and friends are making sure the tractor is ready to plant our school crops of beans and corn.
These discs were in bad repair, and were replaced as seen below.
New discs purchased

The “roof” of this new building was further cemented. When we have enough money, we will finish the next three floors.

Improving the environment

This fix was inexpensive and the results were immediate!

Thank you for supporting the school. It is making a tremendous difference.

The very next day, the play area was dry and not muddy!!!
There was a torrential downpour and rain all day which would have created mud puddles for days, but look at the above picture taken the very next day!
Our goal is to decrease the amount of mud during the rainy season.

Final building starts!

We needed to move our electricity pole to start construction. Another expense, but necessary.

The children are now back to school after the COVID-19 outbreak. New hand-washing stations were built before they returned to school!

Our headmaster and Emmanuel went to look at touch-less hand washing stations in the village. Our welder, who makes all our school needs, designed our own touch-less hand washing stations.

We were given funds by donors from Operation Bootstrap Africa to buy COVID-19 supplies. THANK YOU OBA DONORS!!

They are doing their best to be safe at school.

GREAT harvest this year to feed our school children!

CORN HARVEST

Next comes the BEAN HARVEST!
