Report from Hope Ofiriha, February 2014
Progress at Mairo Primary School - Omilling South Sudan.
Work has been going well at Omilling, and the first two classrooms block
are complete. This was a top priority for the community. The builders
learned from the first phase and it will be faster to erect the remaining
buildings. The building teams have been very dedicated, and everyone has
worked hard. Women had to carry water over 1 km on their heads to enable
the construction to progress while waiting for the borehole to be drilled.
The classes are opened for children aged 6, 7, 8 and 9 to use.
We have experienced supplies problems of varying qualities before, and
these problems have been addressed by delivering building materials to the
site in during this dry season. We are now keeping a larger stocks of
materials in one of the ward room. There are 30,000 interlocking soil
blocks ready for use.
This is the preliminary report just to let you know how thing are
progressing with Mairo school construction project. We will write a final
report after phase one is completed including how money is use for. An
auditor's report will be sent to you as well.
Thank you in advance for helping children in South Sudan get an education
otherwise we wouldn't get with your help, and thanks in advance in for
helping mothers with micro-loans in Uganda.
