The new school is coming along wonderfully! With the hard work of our engineer Luciano Perisinotto, who is on-site each day, we have managed this large construction in a relatively short time. The building started on the 27 April, 2010.
- The second block of classrooms is complete, with just some external finishing touches to be completed.
- The two classrooms will be made into a science block.
- We will soon also start the repair works on the first classroom block. We are waiting for the arbitrator to commence the arbitration process. Thank you again to our quantity surveyors, lawyers, donors and all who have assisted us through this process
- We have just submitted our proposal for phase 4, which includes the specialized classroom block, library, female toilet block, and final construction for the male toilet block.
- VIDES Internazionale have presented phase 3 (administration block) to a potential donor, and have also requested a proposal for the domestic science block. We had anticipated this to come later but are extremely happy that it is a closer possibility.
A tremendous extension of gratitude goes to our donors and supporters who have helped up thus far: Misean Cara, a family trust (who wish to remain anonymous), the Symphasis Foundation through the Salesian Mission Prokur in Bonn, the Rector Major of the Salesians of Don Bosco through the Salesian Mission Office in Spain, the Anglican Bishops Appeal in Ireland, Swedish Caritas, James Nesbitt through UNICEF, the Ministry of Education through the DEBS Office in Kafue, benefactors and contacts of our past volunteers.
