Good evening everyone!
We've got some big news to share with you! Today we received confirmation from our in-country NGO and the community themselves that the Pongwe Primary School's girls dormitory expansion project was approved and blessed by all!
So far we have raised 62% of our final goal for this project! With only 9 days to go, we still have over $5,000 to raise. We kindly ask that you donate and share! share! share! our fundraising page along to any coworkers, friends, and family and ask your employers if they have a matching program. We are so close but we need a lot of support during this final week of fundraising!
Here's some more information about the project we will be doing:
The implementation of this project will allow the school to reopen their enrollment and boarding to visually impaired girls from communities upwards of 1000 Km away! The dormitory provided for these girls is over capacity, provides unfavorable living conditions (especially for those with albinism), and prevent the schools ability to enroll additional students of need.
Our team will be doubling the capacity of the current dormitory for the amazing girls of Pongwe, allowing the enrollment of twice as many girls while enhancing their current living conditions. This will be done by relocating the current matron of the school who resides in the girls dorm building. Inside the dorm, a separating interior wall will be removed, returning the full dormitory to the girls and doubling the space! We will construct a multi-use standalone building that will be used as the matron's cottage for the time being, but will be designed to be converted into a much needed clinic for the school in the near future.
Thank you so much for visiting our page and helping us spread the word. Please help us reach our final goal by next week!

Have a good evening,
