AMAP school is currently located in the middle of Bagamoyo town. The school premises is a rented house of two floors and an adjacent playground space. With the total number of children over 64 right now the old headquarters are proving to be rather small for all the children and the classrooms during the morning session.
We have investigated relocating the school outside the Bagamoyo town area to a bigger and more open location to provide the children with more playground space as well as a better classroom environment.
Our search has lead us to a plot of land with the total surface area of 3 acres and is located around 3 KMs South of the current school location in a fairly uninhabited area with ample trees and greenery. The land will be allocated to the project the early part of 2012 where we shall be starting construction on a portion of it. We are quite excited about the transition and what this would mean to the children of Bagamoyo.
To make the space into an educational center we are looking into building a stage I school and classrooms on about ten percent of the total layout with the total of four classrooms and expanding to six or eight in 2013-2104.
The next quarter of the year is going to prove challenging because we need to gather all our energies and focus on a fundraising campaign to build the four classrooms as stage one of the building premises. We are working towards raising enough funds during the last quarter of 2011 to start and complete the initial building phase no later than the end of May 2012.
We shall be filing progress reports of the fundraising and creating a new cause for our fundraising to help this effort.
