The Main Center
The time has come, the Center is almost open!
On May 11th, the opening ceremony will take place, bringing together all the people who made the construction possible: Laurence Ligier, Founder of CAMELEON, Heide Foulc, Director, the mayor of Silay Mark Golez and our funding partners. The 20 girl victims of sexual abuse will be welcomed in the Center right after the opening ceremony.
The recruiting of the staff is well under way and the training of the new recruits has started.
Regarding the construction, the main house is now finished: the exterior and the walls were painted, the tiles were set up, the windows are in place, and the electricity is now running. The furniture will soon be installed in each room.
Some construction is still ongoing:
- The Mariposa Hall is not done yet but will be finished by May 11th, as it will be used for the opening ceremony: the beneficiaries will perform a dance and circus show in the hall. Same for the perimeter fence, which will be done before the girls move into the Center.
- The office and clinic building is almost finished. Some delay was caused by bad weather, but the office will be operational by June.
- The laundry room, the parking and the access road are all under construction. The playground has not been started yet, as we are still awaiting on the quotation estimates.
We will be happy to share with you some pictures of the opening in our next report!
