Funding Needed for Projects to Upgrade Facilities

Electrification of School and Ablution Facilities

This is primarily a  push for funds; we have completed renovations to the Church and grounds. This year we have concentrated on the old school which we use as a gathering place for fellowship and after Service teas. This old building has received more than a little TLC with cracks and damp attended to. The wooden floor in the foyer was rotten and cement had to be laid to secure the walls. We are now wiring the building for electricity for plugs and lighting for the very first time . Also, the need for toilets to service both Church and School is no longer a " nice to have " but essential. When we hosted Mark van Niekerk in October the strain on the usage of the 1 toilet in the Vestry by 84 people was very evident. The placement of the housing of two toilets and attendant wash basin has been identified- we will use the old reservoir which lies neatly between the Church and School so we will not have the hassles and the associated cost on altering either of the two Heritage Buildings . This conversion cost will be R20000. And then we require a 2000 Litre tank to supply the water . We are hoping to close these projects off in November. Should you be able to donate in support of these projects kindly refer to the " Donate" tab on this website where the payment details are listed. Alternatively you can contact Courteney on 0760611025.

So far two toilet units as well as toilet furnishings have been donated for which we are very grateful. Also, we have received a substantial donation of all the lighting for the Old School. We have placed the installation of the water tank on hold as we do not have sufficient funds. In the interim we plan to purchase a pump which will transfer water to an existing small tank to which we are connecting the piping for the new toilets and wash basin. 

Funding is needed to cover the labour costs of our contractor as well as materials such as roofing, partitioning, cable, cement, paint etc.

Our contractor moved back onto site on January 8 2019 and we hope that during the course of the following week we will be able to post photos of the work in progress.
