We are so excited to announce that we have secured the funding to expand the shelter! We couldn't have done it without your help! After many months of planning and preperation we will be expanding the Challenging Heights Hovde House to be able to accomidate 110 children, up from 60! The shelter will be expanded to include an additional 7 dorm rooms, 8 more bathes and 8 more toilets. With this expansion Challenging Heights will be able to increase our impact!

Challenging Heights is implementing a new 10 Year Strategic Plan which aims to eliminate child trafficking on Lake Volta by 2029! With the expansion of the shelter we will be able to increase our rescues and expand our efforts in order to make our goal a reality!

Construction has begun on the expansion and we hope to have it complete in 3 months. We are so greatful to all who have made this possible.

We want to thank you for sharing our continued vision of end child trafficking. We truly appreciate your support and hope you’ll continue to support us in our on-going efforts!

I was just recently at Challenging Heights Hovde House and there has been so much progress on Phase 1 since I last checked in with you.


The Phase 1 is almost complete. We recently painted the exterior of the building with the help of visiting high school students from Colorado, USA. We are making a great progress with this wonderful project. The building is coming along well and the staff as well as the students are looking forward to the new additions.  
 
Also, we received a donation of 24 IMacs from Castle View High School. The 24 computers are in the lab and being utilized by the students. 

We're so excited to provide the children with a chance to learn 21st century skills, opening new doors and opportunities for their futures.

It's because of your support of this construction that these opportunities are becoming a reality. We're so grateful for your support, and we'll have more updates for you soon!


With gratitude,

I was just recently at Challenging Heights Hovde House and there has been so much progress on Phase 1 since I last checked in with you.

I’m also excited to report to you the windows are now up as you can see in the photos. The workers are working hard hammering in the final black window holders in the frame. We are making a great progress with this wonderful project. The building is coming along well and the staff as well as the students are looking forward to the new additions.  
 

Also, the computer lab provided by Australian Aid is now up and running. 25 computers are in the lab and being utlized by the students. We have also added an ICT teacher to help the students with their computer needs.

We're so excited to provide the children with a chance to learn 21st century skills, opening new doors and opportunities for their futures.

Wow, so much has happened with the construction of Phase 1 since I last checked in with you!

The concrete for the ceilings dried and set, so the wooden molds were removed. Shortly after the load of bricks arrived and the classroom walls quickly went up. What will be a nice, clean bathroom for the children to use was also built.

These classrooms are going to be so spacious! There will be plenty of room for the boys and girls to move around and for the teachers to use some more interactive activities, making learning more fun.

Also, the library has been tiled and windows installed in preparation for the computer lab provided by Australian Aid. We're so excited to provide the children with a chance to learn 21st century skills, opening new doors and opportunities for their futures.

It's because of your support of this construction that these opportunities are becoming a reality. We're so grateful for your support, and we'll have more updates for you soon!
