On February 23rd, nearly two weeks later, I received another email from school director Bwambale Robert urgently requesting $2,000 to allow the construction crew to do the barest minimum of protective measures.
I am just inquiring whether on the KUHA school collected donations, we can secure 2.000$ and it gets wired to us, this may help me roof up the entire school hall building as i am worried the rains have started pouring.
After this, we can take our time to finalize other works.Well, I'm happy to announce that Bwambale received a total of $6,500 today! The funds came from Atheist Alliance International, who are collecting money for the school on their donation page and who have agreed to forward all money donated through the construction project fundraiser page at Causes.com!
Bwambale's words when he was informed of bank transfer. (He received the funds today.)
Neil, Thanks for this and am glad that the amount rose to some figure. This will let me accomplish the current tasks on the site and doing paintings on the buildings. as usual i will keep all of you posted when funds are here.
Out of the $6,500 some $2433.86 came from the fundraiser at Causes.com. This means, I will lower the total amount required to be raised on the Causes.com site by $4,000 to $26,000! This will put us over the 33% mark!
I'm really excited to see some new photo and video updates at the school when construction resumes shortly! Stay tuned to this spot and thank you to all of the donors (and tireless fundraisers) who are making this possible!
