The Misthy Cee school which opened in autumn 2009 now has about 150 students. Some are brought in to school by the minibus supported by recent donations.
Many desks and chairs have been bought for the school and the orphans residential unit. Some bunk beds have been made but others are still under construction. There are currently two resident carers and 6 teachers, these all need training and support. A trained carer costs £50 per month and a traioned teacher £100 per month.
We hope to encourage some British teachers to volunteer there short-term in the near future, mainly to help with training.
I plan to visit in early July and will report then, with photos, on further progress.

Combined with other sources of funding, this project raised enough money to fund the outlined activities and is no longer accepting donations.
