Delivery of bricks from BUCO
Dear BUILD4DAKTARI supporter,
It is a great privilege to present to you our first report on the developments made towards building new facilities for underprivileged children at DAKTARI.
We are so happy to inform you that, thanks to your valuable and irreplaceable support, we have purchased our first batch of building materials. All of this great work done would not be possible without you!! Our building project is still in progress but here are the exciting developments we have already accomplished toward achieving our goals:
- One set of ablution blocks have been completed!
It will provide a healthy and sanitized facility that will be utilized. Project Manager Ian Merrifiled did a fantastic job with managing resources to make this progress possible. "We are proud of the work people have done and are extremely satisfied to present this evolution of the project".
- The extension to the office block was completed.
This will give the organizers a free space to work from and ensure that the project is run at optimum level. This will also allow us to have more long term volunteers join our project and make the entire operation more effective and sustainable. DAKTARI CEO, Michele Merrifiled, expressed her delight in the developments of the project and had this to say to all donors and everyone who has supported this development "On behalf of everyone at DAKTARI, we express our utmost gratitude to every kind soul out there that has been able to help us in whatever way possible, without your support we would not be able to have such an amazing impact on the lives of these underprivileged children and wild animals. Your generosity means the world to us!"
"Many hands make light work"...
This project is the achievement of many little helping hands. It all starts with YOUR kind donations to purchase the materials, then the building team and now our lovely volunteers have painted the white walls of the office full of beautiful colours.
Including BUCO Hardware, a local business, that is a partner and supplier that has been assisting us with materials so that we can accomplish our goal. We applaud them for their generosity, kindness and hard work. Account Manager, Martihnus Heynie, stated, " We at BUCO are so happy to lend a supporting hand to the people that need it most. In this case it is the underprivileged children and wild animals from DAKTARI. Working together with the staff at DAKTARI made this fantastic relationship possible, we know that we can have a lasting impact on the lives of these children who will one day be our future leaders."
