To everyone who has donated towards our project to give 18 children a safer environment to live and grow in, the exciting news is that we have almost completed the construction of the wall. We are super excited to see our project coming to fruition and especially to know that it will not be long before our children will be feeling much safer.
Over the last three months, with the assistance of many local donors who gave in both cash and kind, as well as the GlobalGiving donors, we have almost completed the building of the wall. We should be finished by the end of March and will then be able to start installing the security gates (one for vehicle access and three for pedestrian access).
And this will not be a moment too soon as we are still plagued by crime. The foster village is particularly vulnerable during December when all the mums and many of the village staff are away on holiday with the children. This past December we decided to employ a security guard to patrol the village and he managed to thwart yet another attempted break in, though unfortunately the culprit was not apprehended. We have now added additional alarms to all the houses to increase security. Once the wall is completed and the gates erected we hope to have enough funds to top the wall with either spikes or razor wire/barbed wire as an additional measure to prevent intruders from climbing over the wall.
A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed to the building of the wall. Your contribution has helped us to give our children the safety and security they need to grow and thrive.
