Securing land for the school

Status: Just started
Step: 
3

The school stands to be in need of its own land to build up classes which can ease the poor conditioned structure that children are learning from at the moment Neighbours can look into this fact and find out possible ways of raising funds to purchase land and build our own school which can later or sooner serve a full primary school.In Kenya a full primary school needs up to eleven rooms.

Hi Maria,
I shall be getting in touch with Kitchen Table by e mail today to check on the point you raise. I have waited until we are near to being ready to submit an application, which should be next week.
I will copy you in on the final application...ideally it would be good to post it somewhere where everyone can work on it together but I can't see where this is possible on Nabuur.
Keep up your good work with mosquito nets in Uganda. I have some interest on the subject as our other voluntary work is in disaster relief and I have recently designed and made a prototype emergency shelter which I hope one day will be distributed with mosquito nets.

Cheers Shaun

If this is fine for you, I could create a task to find volunteers who could search websites and ways on how to promote the child sponsorship scheme. From my experience with John´s school in Komarok, I know that it is very difficult to find sponsors that are not your direct friends or family, but it ´s worth trying. I was just wondering - do you have actually the rights for the website and the means to edit documents, the child profiles etc by yourself? This is very important since Marina Klimi might not always be available or even disappear as a volunteer. Also, and that is a little bit sad, apparently Marina copy pasted from the website I created for Kilele Junior School in Komarok ... it´s ok to take ideas etc, but you should make sure to modify them and most importantly replace Kilele Junior school by your school name. Could you check this with Marina? best, Maria [teaser] => Hi Richard, Great website!

Hi Richard,

Great website! If this is fine for you, I could create a task to find volunteers who could search websites and ways on how to promote the child sponsorship scheme. From my experience with John´s school in Komarok, I know that it is very difficult to find sponsors that are not your direct friends or family, but it ´s worth trying.
I was just wondering - do you have actually the rights for the website and the means to edit documents, the child profiles etc by yourself? This is very important since Marina Klimi might not always be available or even disappear as a volunteer. Also, and that is a little bit sad, apparently Marina copy pasted from the website I created for Kilele Junior School in Komarok ... it´s ok to take ideas etc, but you should make sure to modify them and most importantly replace Kilele Junior school by your school name. Could you check this with Marina?

best,
Maria
