November 2016 Update

On the 13th of November there will be a team of four volunteers going to continue the work at Muko School. We have once again managed to include Ceri an English teacher who will be teaching the teachers, not only from this school, but also from other schools in the area. This teaching program has proved to be very successful over the last few years, is well attended and appreciated by all that are present.

The remaining volunteers along with a local labour force will continue with the very successful maintenance program that has transformed the School for its 1700 pupils.

The School’s principal has requested that completing the building of the perimeter wall remain a priority, this is helping to reduce damage to the classrooms out of school hours, and also prevent flooding of the classrooms during the rainy season.

There are still a number of classrooms with mud floors which would benefit from being concreted. These classrooms have no windows, only a hole in the wall which does not allow adequate ventilation. Larger windows would of course also benefit the 40-60 pupils who study in there.

Last year we were able to raise enough funds to build some additional toilets; also a replacement kitchen block, which although still rather basic, allows beans and rice to be cooked for the senior students. Additional water tanks are still required, to allow washing after using the toilets. The general cleaning, painting and repairing is still ongoing.

Nearly all of this work is carried out by the local team, with all materials being bought locally. Obviously finances are required to carry out this work, although all of our volunteers pay their own expenses and fares.

If you have in the past made a donation this very well worthy cause - well done! I thank you, and look forward to updating you further on our return.
