Project Report | Nov 7, 2023
November 2023 PSA Update

By Perrilee Pizzini | Program Manager


 Dear Pygmy Survival Alliance supporters, 

Building Meeting Rooms. Great progress has been made. The windows and doors are installed. The water pipes have been moved to outside where the excess water runs away from the building protecting the foundation. The classroom is full of students five days a week. The building still needs painting on the inside, and furnishings added. The room where the water pipes were removed, the villagers are uising the room by renting it for a variety of meetings. This room needs adult chairs and electricity added so meetings can be held later in the evenings. A complete success. 

The Cultural Center /Expanded Preschool is going through the nex phase of design. We are looking into the Zoneing rules and government Cultural rules and the preschool requirements. So much to decide before breaking ground. 

The kithen has been bilt and the feeding program is being expanded again. Started out a program for the children attending the preschool program. Now it is the children 3 months old through finishing preschool. Plus all children who attend Saturday sports and all the children who show up are fed a cup of porridge and a hard boild egg. Twice a week hard boiled eggs are added to the nuitrician and a cup of milk, on some days. The women who are cooking the porridge have added taking cups of porridge to villagers who are too ill to leave the house. Expanding taking care of each other, when needed. 

Vocational Education is expanding. The students who complete their training are taking on teaching the young people who are wanting to learn sewing and beautician work. Keeping the payments in the community. The program is only a few months along. It seems to be working out well.

Soccer is still very popular with the community, and the children are still playing as often as possible. Saturdays are very competitive with the adults and children.  Neighboring soccer teams come to join the activity and the compitition is high. Uniforms, balls and porridge remain exciting and popular. 

 The Cultural Center /Expanded Preschool is going through the nex phase of design. We are looking into the Zoneing rules and government Cultural rules and the preschool requirements. So much to decide before breaking ground. 

Colaborating with the community on projects is quite a shift for all of us, the resut is the community of Pygmies are taking on more and more of the general responsibilitys. They have elected members of the commnity to be the leaders. They are stepipng up and fullfilling the duties of people incharge.
