Greetings from Midawe our dear supporters,

 

It has been 3 months since we launched this fundraising effort and what has happened since was a chain of miracles. In the past, the classrooms were built mainly through the support of a few overseas donors. The dining-hall project heralds the first time that we have been able to bring in local support as well both monetary and in-kind. It will also be the first two story building on our campus, which brings a whole new set of complexities to the construction.

When we say that our school was built brick by brick with grass roots support, I am not mixing words. Half of the donations we have received so far have been piles of bricks and bags of cement. Which means that work has started. The MP for Arumeru Region, donated 100 bags of cement and set the foundation stone during our first graduation ceremony. The foundation has been dug, rebar for the second story supports has been set, concrete poured and walls have begun to go up.

In addition to the local community, every volunteer that has come on campus has contributed to the construction to the best of their means, purchasing supplies and making donations. And then there is all the help we have received from you, our dear Global Giving supporters. Brick by brick may not be the fastest pace to raise a building, but the walls we are building are strong, held together with more than mortar and cement. The strength of your friendship and commitment to our school and its students make for the stoutest bonds indeed, 

 

From all of us at Ikirwa School Project,

 

Asante Santa
