Signing Off for Now

Well, we are going to have to put this project on the back burner for now for failure to progress. It is really a project that is secondary to our organization's focus and we are unable to dedicate much time to fundraising for it. Funds raised have allowed for different works to be done on the building for the internet center and long-term volunteer apartment that is above it, such as electric work, plumbing, and the purchase of a toilet. However, we have not had a final cushion to get things up and going, so we will have to just put things on the back burner for now and if the opportunity arises, progress with it.

I apologize if this update and news is dissatisfying to you as a donor. However, this is the reality of how things are often done here in this country for this reason of lack of resources. You often see half built houses or houses that have the starting of a second floor but are left that way for years. This is because people invest when they have the resources and take steps toward their end goal, but just put the project on the back burner when resources are not available. So when in Rome... we will have to do the same.

Thank you so much for your support and you may be interested in checking out some of our other ongoing projects that we are more able to focus on at this time.
