We met with the Principal of the Elementary School and discussed what was most needed, and the Kindergarten Classroom was one of the most important areas that needed rebuilding. After seeing the building and understanding that the Kindergarten children were currently sharing a room with other pupils, making it extremely difficult to sit and also learn, we decided to go ahead with the project. Whilst we were there with the funds we had already raised from so many generous donors, we were able to [...]
