The well is finished

A first big step could be achieved with our borehole completion. This borehole will provide the students with drinking water once the school is opened. Furthermore it already means an assistance at the work site, because now no water e.g. for the concrete has to be delivered costly.

When we began drilling in November, the excitement was big if we will hit water. But then the reliefing news came: The drilling was a success and the workers actually hit water. In fact they had to dig 100 metres, but nevertheless it was big luck, because thus it saved us the costs and efforts of another drilling. The borehole instantly was mounted, which means, that a pipe was laid and a casing pump was connected. Besides a generator and a polytank with stand will be acquired. In total the costs added up to 6000 EUR, which could be covered up with the generous donations and the successful charity events of the last year.

We are pleased that the building of the school is going forward step by step and we count on further help from your side.

News from the construction site

First progress can be seen. Building materials could be purchased with a part of the donations. The workers at Ghbalahi moulded about 1000 blocks out of sand and cement. Later on the four blocks, of wich the school contains, will be constructed out of these blocks. Furthermore the ground plot was marked, as you can see on the left picture. Best requirements, this is how it can go on.

We already have 4722€

This is how Ghbalahi looks at the moment. As you can see there are no buildings yet. Not yet! This will change soon. We have already aquired a piece of land with the kindly permission of the chief and the local authorities to build our school there. This means, that this piece of land which you can see is already secured for the school. The next step will be to mark the land. This means that we will mold blocks, which will be later used to build the complex.
