This is a quick update on the Apagya R/C Project for which we sought your kind donations and support some weeks ago.
Due to your kind donations, we have been able to raise over GHC5000! A group of philanthropists who hail from Apagya had also expressed interest in the project, with a fund of about GHC6000, so we joined forces.
On Tuesday 26 August, our representative joined up with a rep of the other group and travelled to Kumasi to purchase items to start work on the roofing and concrete works to arrest the erosion of the foundation/concrete apron.
A member of the planning team connected us to a hardware dealer who gave both discounts and contributed to the project by paying half of the transportation cost from Kumasi to Apagya, which is GHC300. He also left his duties and took us round to make the other purchases – what kindness!
Below are pictures of the items purchased, receipts, income and expenditure statements and items pending to be bought.
A separate list will be done for the items needed for the painting and associated costs.
Communal labour is done on Tuesdays and Fridays, and so work starts next Tuesday. The community is grateful to you all.
We will update you with pictures of progress.
Below is the original post of intention.
We are still receiving donations and are grateful for your continuous support.
God bless richly.
Nana (on behalf of the Project Planning Team)
Apagya R/C Primary School is a basic school in the Adansi South district of Ashanti region serving about 5 communities within its catchment area. The school is made up of a decent six (6) unit classroom block plus a headmaster’s office.
A recent rainstorm caused severe damages to the school block.
The issues at hand are bulleted below:
• The damage/complete lifting off of the roof for three of the classrooms and the headmaster’s office.
• The other three classrooms have leakages in several areas which affects learning activities in the event of a rainfall;
• The intention to paint building to improve its aesthetic appearance once the roof works has been done.
There is also the issue of erosion affecting the foundation/concrete apron which needs to be resolved. On some sections of the concrete apron, the erosion has almost washed away the concrete apron thereby posing danger to the walls of the building whilst on other sections the erosion has just started. Resolving the issues surrounding the foundation will ensure a complete failure (and possible injury) of the classroom walls is prevented in the next few years.
Some friends and I are raising funds to repair the roof, paint the school and resolve the issues around the foundation.
Please be rest assured that any assistance received from you will be accounted for and used diligently for the purpose of the project. To ensure transparency, we are happy to let you see the final accounts for the project (ie sources and uses of funds). We are also willing to help you get direct access to the Headmaster of the school regarding this noble undertaking.
Please find attached pictures of the school building.
Kindly contact me via mail or in comment section for details of payment modes if you wish to support this project.
You could also donate in kind (paint, paint brushes, roofing sheets).
We wish to have the project implemented by end August 2014.
