And another one down, another one down.........

This grade 5 classroom now has a new roof

Thanks to your amazing generosity our team in Tacloban recently finished work repairing yet another school affected by typhoon Haiyan.

The Pitogo Elementary school is attended by 129 kids from the municipality of Jaro, which is about 40 miles from Tacloban.

The school was devastated by typhoon Haiyan (called Yolanda in the Philippines) leaving the kids learning in appalling and dangerous conditions.

Other NGO’s fixed several buildings but the grade 5 classroom was left with only tarps for a roof.

During rains the water poured in, and the classroom’s internal ceiling was in danger of collapsing and injuring a child.

So, our amazing team worked at the school to completely replace the classroom’s roof and ceiling. We also repainted the inside and outside of the building to give it a fresh, welcoming feel.

Finally, we made repairs to another building’s badly damaged roof. This building is scheduled for demolition but our work made sure that no kids will be hurt before this happens.

Our work has transformed the education of the grade 5 children, giving them back the opportunities the typhoon took away from them. It’s also given all the kids at the school a much safer environment in which to learn.

In total this means we’ve now helped to repair and reopen 14 schools since the typhoon. This has directly supported the education of over 5,000 kids!

This incredible impact has only been possible because of your support. And this October 7 we’re hoping you’ll help us continue our work by making a donation on the last ever Microsoft Youthspark Matching Day.

There is a total of $75,000 in match funds available, and all donations made between noon and midnight Eastern US time (5pm until 5am the following day in the UK) will be matched on a prorated basis.

So, if our project raises $10,000, and a total of $100,000 is donated during the event, then we’ll receive 10% of the available matching, or $7,500 in total.  Donations up to $1,000, or around £660, will be matched on both the US and UK GlobalGiving sites.

If you have any questions about the event, or about this project, then please don’t hesitate to email Andy@IDVolunteers.org. I would be delighted to hear from you.
