Stressed parents, teachers, children and schools. The question that remains is, are schools safe to open? The Ministry of Education in Uganda recently released a draft of very strict guidelines for schools to follow in the event of reopening. Aunt Elvi, like most schools, has a boarding section. We have been concerned prior to COVID-19 with the poor bathroom facilities for the girls. We thought it would be easy and cost effective to construct a bathroom and attach it to their current dormitory. After a visit to the school, we realized that would not work because the current dormitory has major cracks (new wine into old wine skins don’t mix!). Plans have changed, we will need to construct an entire dormitory with a bathroom. The total construction estimate is $20,000 with $5,000 needed to start the foundation.
Please pray and stand with us to make this a reality for a new dormitory/bathroom for the girls at Aunt Elvi.
