Thanks to You - Here Come the Desks!

Thanks to you, forty-five new desks are scheduled for delivery to Calvary Primary School in just a few days! Each desk seats three students, so that’s 135 children who will be seated at these new desks. The rest of the school benefits too, as all the children get more space to sit in class.

We had planned for the desks to be in place before the new school term began in February, but we needed to wait for the wood used for desk tops and seats to cure. The desk frames are metal construction, and are expected to last many years.

Construction is being completed entirely within the community, and the project benefits the local economy right where the children live. 

GlobalGiving is having a Bonus Day on March 13th! Donations of up to $1,000 to either of our projects will be matched at 30% while matching funds remain:

Our Desk Project

Our Child Support Project 

We’ll send another update as soon as we have the desks in place!
