Raising the Roof Appeal...
Following our appeal for funding to raise the roof on the new block of 4 classrooms at St Mary's School Chama, Zambia... the concrete supports for the roof and verandah are now almost all in place.
We need 60 corrugated iron sheets and more materials such as roofing nails, wooden beams, and preservative.
The Livingstone Initiative and friends in the UK and Zambia have now raised enough funding to supply the 60 roofing sheets needed for the roof. This has been achieved with funds raised to date and a further individual donation towards the Appeal is going to pay for the main beam above the verandah supports. We still need a little more to reach our goal of £5,000 which will enable us to purchase the remaining roofing materials such as trusses, beams, nails, preservative, etc., and also cover transport costs to Chama.
If you would like to help,
The new school we are helping to build in Chama will be the first secondary school for girls in a remote region of Zambia, where there is still a prevalence of early pregnancies and child marriage.
Help us to move the meter to reach our goal.
All donations warmly welcomed.
