Update from Denis

A note from Denis:

Year 2020 brings us to a year of hard work and sacrifice. We are thankful and we give grace to God who has made us alive and strong. Our struggles continue in a positive perspective although amidst a few manageable challenges.

The process of construction of the children centre and library project is ongoing. We are thankful for the donations and hopeful that we continue to touch the hearts of all those who sacrifice to support the project here.

With your support we have managed to reach the roofing phase. So far we have paid for the timber, bought nails and now we are challenged with the purchase of 60 iron sheets for covering the roof and paying for the labour needed. This work is supposed to be undertaken as soon we get the funds. After roofing we will move to the next phase of fixing doors and windows.

Besides construction, we can touch lives of children here in my community by supporting their educational needs and above all provide them with psycho social care and support as a team in that, we will reach our targets.

As children are getting back to school, we have been involved in collecting scholastic supplies and also finding sponsors for our needy community children so that they can get affordable education geared towards improving the live standards of children and their families.

In conclusion, let’s join hands to contribute and support the Children centre and library project. The holistic care, support, growth, and development of children is our priority. “A hand which gives receives a handful of blessings” Hope to hear from you.

Thank you from Denis & Amazon wishlist

A note from Denis: “Big applause to the good-hearted donors and regards to the well wishers and to all who contribute to the construction process… A Big THANKS to all those who have donated and for those who will still donate in the next phases of our project.” The next phase involves continuing with the roofing – building roof beams and installing iron sheets.

We’ve started a wishlist on Amazon. While any book of high quality is welcome, the bulk of the collection in this library needs to reflect the community of eastern Africa. For that reason, many of the books on the wishlist are set in Africa. The list is not exhaustive, and we will continue to add to it. Children, teen and adult books are needed, and we need both fiction and nonfiction. If you or a group would like to donate books for this project, please contact us, and refer them to this wishlist. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3OM8ZI6JWB947?ref_=wl_share – DC

Bricklaying at Abwanget village

Denis has been busy making bricks! When it’s not raining, Denis spends time forming and baking bricks, thousands of them. The bricklaying for the community center and library is almost complete. Roofing work will come next. Denis’s children are enjoying reading the books that I gave them over the summer. We’re excited about opening a library for this community! We’ve already begun purchasing books for this library and can’t wait for the children there to read them! – DC
