5 years ago, SheBuildsLives embarked on our very first school project for Whanyinna Nursery & Primary School, raising donations to support students and needs of the school. This project impacted 239 children and was indeed a huge blessing to all involved.  

(Here is a recap) http://bolakrafts.blogspot.com/2015/01/bola-krafts-cares-3rd-edition-recap.html

We've stayed in touch over the years, however more than ever since September 22, 2019 when Noah Shemede, principal and director of the school reached out to us for help. You see the old school building had deteriorated and was no longer conducive for the students. Thankfully, a church had offered up space for classes( 218 students currently)  to be held but it was clear - we needed to build a new school.

 And so that is exactly what we set out to do. 

Over the last month, we have been making great HUGE progress as you can see from the video and we've now come to a point where we need your help to finish Stage 1.We need to complete the school structure, connect power, build desks and chairs, ship computers for our computer lab, get educational materials and uniforms for the students. 

Whanyinna which means LOVE will be turning 10 this November and so this project is incredibly special to us, we can't wait for the students to be in their new space. We are excited for you to become part of the #FriendsOfSBL Community! God bless you tremendously as you support this wonderful project!
