We have build a Community Centre in Namunyuka. This centre will be used as a training ground to offer services such as marriage workshops, counseling and guidance to HIV patients and offer adult education, health tips and soft vocation skills as a way to fight poverty in the community.
We officially opened the Community Centre. It was a beautiful day, full of joy together with the community and local authorities. We are thankful that God has brought us this far, and we can’t wait to see the blessings that will flow through this building.
We are working on the separators of the classrooms. Meanwhile also finishing touches at the outside is being worked on as the stone walls are being put in place and some of the paint work is being done.
The installation of solar and lights took place. Thankful we have electricity at the centre and the volunteer house. We also worked at making the foundation solid, by courting it with stones and the balustrades were build to keep the children safe.
We were able to put the glasses into the window frames!
The centre is being plastered from inside and outside and decorated beautifully with designs.
We are thankful and glad that we were able in this time to finish the roofing of the community centre. It was a steady and quick process thanks to contributions made by the company Magistor, Citadelcollege, Annet and other friends and partners of YoChild-Africa. We love the looks of the roofed centre!
Building the walls of the Community Centre was the next step in the process. During the month of August the builders have worked hard to finish all the walls before rain season starts. We are happy to let you know that their hard work paid off, the walls have recently been completed. As we raise funds now for building the roof, we hope to continue building in a short time from now.
Time to lay the foundation. Since the second week of July the builders have started working on the foundation of the Community Centre.
We have started clearing and preparing the land to be able to lay the foundation. The land is a bit hilly so the worker have to dig deep to level the land. These preparations will take approximately two weeks.
