Here we are in February 2014 with great news of the progress at Kakama community school in Kabwe, Zambia. After a long hard struggle we have finally managed to get tap water to the classrooms for the orphans and vulnerable children! We cannot state how much difference this is making to the children’s lives and must point out how happy they are. The children are actually taking the opportunity to use the water to wash their clothes and clean themselves before going home after classes.
We are arranging another medical team to visit the children this year. Our progress since we started has been slow but we keep going as these poor little children need help so badly. We would like to thank those people, parents, teachers and school children who have help change these children’s lives. Bit by bit we do what we can. We are not a big charity and find it incredibly difficult to raise funds, but with the little we have raised there has been a big improvement.
Now we have water at the school we would love to knock down the old toilets and build a new one for the children. The old toilet has benefitted from the ability to clean it as best as possible but it is so bad it needs to go. We want to build a new toilet block and a wash room for the children to clean their clothes. We have had help from people and officials along the way but without the children of the Holy Family catholic School in Addlestone Surrey England, the project would surely have failed. We want those children who worked so hard to raise funds to know how much they are appreciated in Zambia by the orphans and children of Kakama Community School.
We are currently waiting for new images of the children at the school with their new water supply! Come back soon.
Below are the first pictures of the roof and children inside the newly repaired classroom.
Our thoughts are with the family of our teacher who sadly passed away without seeing the new roof!
Now the next task is to get these children some sanitation.. Believe us when we say it is more than a bad situation!!
We need funds urgently as the roof and repairs to the main building have been used up!
