Do not give ready-made food to children - give them education  so they fish for themselves!

Thanks for your recent generous donation to Educate Children & Fight Poverty in Southern  Sudan project. Your commitment to help  build Mario primary School is certainly appreciated by our board of trustees,  and those who will benefit most - the children!

What is next? Work is progressing well! But due to heavy rainfall the production of interlocking soil block has been temporally  stopped until October. The villagers managed to produced 7500 of soil blocks using 50 bags of cement. There are also 40 bags of cements stored at the site, and are to be used once the rain ends.

Instead, the villagers have shifted in making the local materials and collected approximately 100 tonnes quarry stones, lake sand, and hard-core stones manually. The local materials are still needed since water cannot melt them away. This rainy season will be used to produce tonnes. The children, women, and men are motivated to build Mairo Primary School as most now understand the importance of educating their children than before.

This project is still a long way from completion we will be sending you the quarterly report, so you get to know what your subscription has helped influence and what have been achieved from the ground.
