The works have progressed well in the Center under construction by the Association AGAPE and his partner, SOLENCA Association. The ceiling is completely installed. The installation of tiles is estimated at 95% for the upper part of the building. All central doors are fixed. The metal grills are fully installed on the windows. The aluminum glass windows are being made and the wood doors are being made.

The electrical installations are also completely put on the ground floor. The only thing left is the passage of the neon tubes for a complete lighting.  

We continue to count on you to complete this center.

Securing the Japoma Centre.


The continuation of the work at the Japoma Centre continues with the securing of the entire building. The grilles have been installed on almost all the windows of the upper block. Only the basement of the house was secured until now. Metal doors have also been installed in the upper block. The ceiling is installed on about 65% of the house. The screed work has started in preparation for the tiling of the ground floor.

The objective of receiving more children at the AGAPE Centre under construction in Japoma leads us to target vital work for this reception and to focus on it to facilitate the integration of these young people. Thus, the dormitories must be fitted out. In this regard, all the ceilings of the actual dormitories have been installed. The metal grid windows have been installed. The screed of two dormitories out of three is laid.

The progress of the work in the lower floor of the building can be estimated at 87%. This floor houses the following fully constructed rooms:

-1 training hall

-1 toilet

-1 temporary dormitory

-1 temporary room for the supervising staff.

The lower floor also contains the following rooms which are being completed:

-2 kitchens

-1 laundry room

-1 guest room for visiting partners from abroad

On the ground floor; which is the higher floor, construction work had been temporarily interrupted due to financial needs and delays in delivery from manufacturers. It will resume with the arrival of our French partner SOLENCA who will bring funds collected through their efforts in France and the generous donation of RG Marbles in Douala. We are very thankful for SOLENCA’s continuous support and for RG & CO Marbre/Granite/Verre’ donation.

The plan is the installation all doors, windows and locks on the higher level to fully secure the building; as well as the layout of the work spaces according to the responsibility of each staff for optimal performance. The progress of this work will allow the spaces to be occupied as planned.

We will never stop thanking you for the efforts you have made to get us to this level. Being very proud of the level of your commitment, we still need you to help complete this house in order to accommodate the less privileged children of society and “give more children a normal childhood”.

EVOLUTION OF THE WORK SINCE OUR INTEGRATION IN THE NEW CENTER

 The youth and educators entered the AGAPE Center at the beginning of August of this year. The center had neither doors nor windows. But today, we observe a great evolution on the site. A cesspool has been dug and poured. The septic tank has also been poured. The metal doors have been completely installed on the basement compartment. The locks are also almost completely installed. The tiles are 90% installed in the basement. The sinks are under construction in the kitchens.

The move was done with 10 young people. But after one month of living in Japoma, we were obliged to separate a child who had difficulty observing the rules of living together in an institution. The other 9 children have returned to school. Their first evaluations will start soon.

Overall, we can estimate the progress of the work at Japoma at 70%. We need your help more than ever to make the house completely safe in order to limit the diseases that constantly strike the children because of the frequent mosquito bites.

A visit to the construction site shows the progress of the work. The escape of the great hall began on January 13 and will continue in all the other rooms of the basement of the building. The plastering of the walls of the other rooms had already been done. It is now a matter of squirting the walls of the traditional kitchen and installing the level cleats.

The preparatory work for the paving of the basement is completely done. The trails are laid with a view to leveling the paving. The team is waiting for electricians and plumbers for the passage of pipes and ducts before laying concrete on the ground.

The material for the paving is already available. These are cement, sand and gravel.

Connection work has started on the ground floor. It is more precisely the removal of planks passed through the walls whose purpose was to assemble the scaffolding. Once the boards have been removed, the holes are filled with concrete.

 

Planning to integrate the Center in Japoma during the school vacation period, we requested the services of a dowser who was to locate an abundant water crossing point, since we are considering the installation of a borehole.
