News on the projects
Greenhouse primary school Primero de Mayo San Ildefonso-Potosí. The starting signal has been given, construction work will start after the winter on August 12 and will take three months. The rest of the school year, teachers and their pupils will be taught how to use the greenhouse, how to plant and nurture crops, and how to develop healthy eating habits. They are looking forward to it!
Computer and internet project school for VO Pichincha-Potosí. The good news: there is internet and it works, the computer furniture is bought and a librarian in charge of the computers, who will help the children is (fulltime) employed! The bad news: in June it seemed there weren’t enough funds because the estimated cost turned out to be higher than we thought and the funding was stopped. But after posting our problems on Facebook several gifts have come in to make this project possible. Together with the unexpectedly high collected funds of the actions of the Praedinius Gymnasium this is enough to give the green light for this project! Fantastic! The computers are ordered and the students can start to work on them in August!
Sanitation block primary school Caiza D. Sadly this project could not yet be finished, an important technical change still has to be implemented. This will be solved after winter break. In the meantime it has become a long-term project with many setbacks. But one thing is certain: we are determined to finish a good project that can make us all proud. We won’t abandon the school, we will keep our promises!
Many thanks to all generous donors who have made this possible!
