ZoomUganda Matale Girls' Dormitory - Project Update

In April 2012, the Harambee Centre wired $12,000 to St. Andrews, which enabled the school community to break ground on the new girls dormitory

• The photos (in the pdf) show the leveling of the ground and the start of the Matale girl’s dormitory building foundation and the Matale-Southridge cultural exchange during winter 2012.

• Supporters on both the U.S side and Matale side were over joyed with the start of this project.

• Our major challenge is that the funds we had on hand could only do so much. The community informed us there is a chance that the rainy season may impact the progress of the work done thus far.

• We appeal to you our donors, to help us generously in order to keep this work going.

• We hope you enjoy the photos of this work we are doing together!

Thank you!
