I need your help to raise $5,000 to improve the safety and education of students at my rural school in Lesotho, Africa.
Your donations will go through the Peace Corps Partnership Program funds website.
My community has agreed upon the following 3 priorities to help our school.
1). Make a safe classroom environment for 5th grade students.
Half the roof and ceiling collapsed in July, due to the unusually heavy snow storm, and I’m worried about our safety.
2). Electrical wiring of all classrooms to teach computer skills.
My village now has electricity, however, the classrooms have not been wired due to a lack of funds. Since we received four desktop computers from the Minister of Energy, the teachers and students would like to learn how to use them.
3). Install vinyl tiles on the floors in all classrooms.
Only the staff room and grade 7 have vinyl floor tiles, all other classrooms have cracked, cement floors which are icy-cold in the winter, and hazardous throughout.
The children, teachers, community (AND ME) are all extremely grateful to you for helping us make the school a better place.
I shall post updates and photos once we receive the funds, and start the 3 phases of the project.
You can also follow our progress on my FaceBook if you’d like.
THANK YOU SO MUCH.
