Its finally coming together

I was just recently at Challenging Heights Hovde House and there has been so much progress on Phase 1 since I last checked in with you.

I’m also excited to report to you the windows are now up as you can see in the photos. The workers are working hard hammering in the final black window holders in the frame. We are making a great progress with this wonderful project. The building is coming along well and the staff as well as the students are looking forward to the new additions.  
 

Also, the computer lab provided by Australian Aid is now up and running. 25 computers are in the lab and being utlized by the students. We have also added an ICT teacher to help the students with their computer needs.

We're so excited to provide the children with a chance to learn 21st century skills, opening new doors and opportunities for their futures.

It's because of your support of this construction that these opportunities are becoming a reality. We're so grateful for your support, and we'll have more updates for you soon!

17 boys and girls reunited with their families!

It was that time again recently: Reintegration Day! Last month 17 boys and girls had made it far enough along their path to recovery to move on from the Challenging Heights Hovde House and back into their communities with their families. They were all welcomed home with lots of hugs, smiles, and shouts of joy.

This was all just a few days before the school term resumed, so the children would be able to start school just as their peers returned as well. So far, each of the children has been settling into their new school routine very well and their teachers are happy to help support them in any way necessary.

Their successful recovery is because of your support of the Challenging Heights Hovde House. These amazing surivivors would not have made it this far without people like you who care about their future.

Brick by brick, Phase 1 is becoming a reality

Wow, so much has happened with the construction of Phase 1 since I last checked in with you!

The concrete for the ceilings dried and set, so the wooden molds were removed. Shortly after the load of bricks arrived and the classroom walls quickly went up. What will be a nice, clean bathroom for the children to use was also built.

These classrooms are going to be so spacious! There will be plenty of room for the boys and girls to move around and for the teachers to use some more interactive activities, making learning more fun.

Also, the library has been tiled and windows installed in preparation for the computer lab provided by Australian Aid. We're so excited to provide the children with a chance to learn 21st century skills, opening new doors and opportunities for their futures.

It's because of your support of this construction that these opportunities are becoming a reality. We're so grateful for your support, and we'll have more updates for you soon!
