Responsible for this post’s heading is a message I received from Ghana today. I shows that our work is earning success. A few days ago our Ghanaian deputy Alhassan Salifu reported that he is going to mold about 3000 blocks from the money we collected the last months. This sounds pretty amazing but it’s a difference if you just read it or see the effort. And today he has sent pictures from the worksite. It looks awesome! So many blocks, the whole material, I wish I could go there and join the work myself. On this occassion I want to thank Alhassan Salifu and the inhabitants of Ghbalahi, who worked voluntaryly for their and our school. But there is another one I have to thank and this is YOU, our donators, because your money made this possible. Let’s go on!!!!
A report from 10.03.15. Christoph Wenzl held his talk “my year in Ghana” at the elderly people group of Cham/St. Josef, where he reported about his life and work in Kaleo, Ghana. There was a big attendance andorganisator Carola Gleixner was especially pleased to welcome so many male members. And the participants were not disappointed. Christoph Wenzl reported very colorful of the Westafrican country and of its culture in special. The elderly people showed much interest and asked many questions during the break. In the second part Wenzl told of his work at the Kaleo Senior High Technical school, as teacher for ICT and chemistry. In line with the presentation he also introduced the Taha-school-project and the association, whose aim is to build a secondary school in Taha. The elderly people donated the proceeds of their thank-you box to the project.
Everyone who wants to know more about the project and wants to hear the presentation “my year in Ghana” is invited to Kehlheim on 25.04.2015 at 19.00 or asks us for an own date.
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.
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.
On the 27.03.2014 the presentation “My year in Ghana” took place at the Joseph-von-Fraunhofer Gymnasium Cham (Bavaria, Germany). Christoph Wenzl, who is a former student of the Fraunhofer school and also co-founder of the Taha School Project, was the speaker. He imposingly reported of his voluntary social year in Kaleo, Ghana. Furthermore he introduced the project. The attendants could win a good impression of the life in Ghana, with the help of many descriptive pictures. To our big pleasure the will to donate money was very big, so that the Assistant Headmaster, Josef Vogl could hand Christoph Wenzl over a check about 1500€, plus 700€ in cash. At this point we thank again Josef Vogl, the students and teachers of the Jospeh-von-Fraunhofer Gymnasium and all the attendants for their great donation. Thank you very much!
