Challenge

Several years ago, on a great leap of faith, the Community Center Multi-purpose Building was started. The walls are up. Then the rains came, as they do every year and it got impossible to use. The next best thing was to cobble something together to try to keep the rain out. That hasn't really worked. To be able to properly use the building, no matter what the weather is, we desperately need a roof.

Solution

Keeping our 400 children safe and healthy is a key piece of our work here. By putting a real roof on top that works, adding windows and doors, we will be able to use this for school assemblies, community events. It will also serve as a visitor welcome center.

Long-Term Impact

We are educating at-risk children who will be the future leaders of our country. Lifting them out of abject poverty into a milieu where they can advance and make a difference in Africa for the better.
