Update #9

Each classroom will now have a new wall mounted fan allowing a much cooler learning environment for the students. This was ONLY possible because of your early contributions that allowed the school to have a power back-up source. Simple but Amazing...

Update #8

Many of the non contributing friends wanted to just donate clothes for the children and adults. Although, not the original goal, how can we turn away such generosity. We are shipping this week a large box full of donations and will add this step to phase 2. Muchas Gracias God Bless America.

Update #7

PHASE 1 COMPLETED: the manual installation of the electric inverter and the 2 deep cycle batteries is completed. This will become the school’s main backup power source and provide basic lighting to each student’s classroom. This reliable power source will allow us to buy a ceiling fan for each classroom. We will update as soon as Phase 2 is completed.
