Dear Donors,

This project has been completed in June 2019 as we reported in our last report. However, because the rainy season continued until September 2019, we anticipated any worst case scenario in how durable our construction could be in standing up against the heavy rainfalls that had occurred almost daily. We are glad to inform you that the construction for the landslide project has now stood up to the heavy rainfalls (see Fig 1-5 below, the photos of which were taken the same day as this report was posted). That means the construction has passed the real test of the rainy season as we are now entering the end of the rainy season.

However, we keep this project open but inactive because we are still monitoring the hill slope where the landslide occurred and where we have now grown more and more trees to strengthen the hold of the soil along the slope (see Fig 6 below) to make sure no landslide will occur again here in the future. Therefore, any future donations for the landslide project will go to buying tree seedlings that we can grow along this slope.

In addition to that, we keep this project open for a temporary use by children sponsors who prefer to transfer their monthly donations to their sponsored children automatically online. In the coming weeks, we will launch a separate project dedicated only for children sponsorship. Then we will therefore deactivate this landslide project.

On behalf of the children, we thank you: your generous support and help have made it possible for the children to go back to their classrooms again and to sleep in their dormitory rooms again without the worries of the landslide.

Kind regards,
Yaowawit Team

Final Report of Land Slide project

The stream’s banks on all sides of the two bridges that crosses the main stream have been  stabilized using gabion mattresses filled with rocks.  

Vetevia grasses were planted on the hill as well as the fruit trees.

Ground cover were also added on the top of the gabion boxes to maintain the drain and safe the soils to  not washing down.

It's will take about 3-4 months till the grass roots will completely growth and establish into the soil.

Most of all, the hill from landslide being safe and the building ready to  ove in.

 

 

Thanks for you all who support us since last year till now.

Yaowawit School Landslide Report - March 2019

Soil Erosion Repair & Prevention Work

In March 2019, the restoration work is underway to install drainage passage under the gabion wall. The workers are compacting the soil under the retaining wall of the reinforced concrete base. Individual gabion baskets are placed to form an integrated structure.The gabion retaining wall is constructed to stabilize surface slopes.

The work schedule is back on track and the time lost due to rainfall is recovered. The overall site progress is estimated at 35% and the work is scheduled to complete in mid-May 2019. Lastly, thanks to all donors for your care and support for our school. The school’s funds for restoration of damaged buildings are still needed. Some classroom buildings located on such area affected by landslide are inaccessible and currently pending the risk exposure assessment.
