Urgent Needs

Reliable Power Source

Now that the children have moved into the facility, the government electrical source has become extremely unreliable.  Chedlin is investigating both generator and solar sources for power.  Conservative estimate of a $16,500 need immediately.  Exploring both grants and foundation help to meet this need.  All levels of donation helpful.

Now that we are moved to the new site. Some unfinished areas.

This new site doubles our capacity for children in need of a home and more than doubles the number of children attending the school. Cost to complete and furnish the new orphanage is carefully controlled. Some unfinished areas are the keepers home/multi-purpose building/kitchen. If we can raise a generous sum (in the next few months) we will be able to complete the building and essentially complete the main construction portion of the new site.

Currently we support the monthly operations of the children's home/school by sending funds each month. Our expenses will increase once we move the children so it would be great for an organization to come aboard on a monthly basis.

I give you all of this information because we would love each of you to ask friends, colleagues, coworkers, church friends, etc to consider joining us in this work
