Let them read – the library is open!

Nothing feels more satisfying and makes happier than seeing the outcome of an idea that the CIA school and the SCHRAMM Connection had two years ago. Persistent fundraising, generous donors, including Noemi’s old Kantonsschule in Kreuzlingen, and a lot of community efforts contributed to the newly built library at the CIA school in Nyandeyama. The library has received a first stock of youth and young adults books from a book drive in the US, and the SCHRAMM Connection will add textbooks to the selection. Madam Margaret Suwu organised shelves from the local supermarket, and the local carpenter is still working on more tables and chairs, that will allow the students to use the library as a learning and resource center.

Construction in progress | Schule bauen!

The CIA school in Kenema has been busy fixing the roof and remaining two classrooms, as well as the latrine. It also gave the whole building a lovely blue coat! Look at the pictures for some impressions.
The teachers received part of their salaries (they shared the money we sent to them) and are super happy – they say THANKS!

Die CIA Schule in Kenema war die letzten Wochen sehr beschäftigt mit der Fertigstellung des Daches, der letzten zwei Klassenzimmer und der Latrine. Sie haben die ganze Schule wunderschön blau angemalt! Schaut euch die Bilder an für mehr Eindrücke.
Die Lehrer haben teil ihres Lohnes erhalten (sie haben das Geld unter sich geteilt) und sind überglücklich – sie sagen DANKE SCHÖN!!!
