Help us to raise the Roof

This project is in its final stages. A storey building at the Afrikaya Nursery School, the first floor of which will serve the community as an adult education centre and a community centre. www.afrikaya.co.uk
Why? As well as a service to the local community, this will enable the school to start to become self-financing instead of relying on donors from abroad. The community centre will show videos which people will pay to watch - like a cinema. The room will also be hired out for weddings, naming-ceremonies, remembrance ceremonies, and so forth, which will be a god-send in the 3 months rainy season.
The building is complete. Downstairs is fully functional as a kitchen, kitchen store room, dining area, medical centre, admin room, big store room, and a classroom for the pre-nursery children. The estimated cost for the roof alone was £10,000 - it is a very big area to cover. Thanks to the generosity of 2 of our supporters and fundraising events we have organised ourselves, we have just £3,950 left to raise. The iron struts are in place [iron because termites destroy wood]. We now need to buy the iron sheets to put on the struts and pay the workers.
 

The monsoon rains start towards the end of June. So for most days during the following 3 months there is likely to be rain storms - not the drizzly stuff that we are used to but very heavy, damaging rain. We really need to get as much of the roof finished by end July so we dont get damage to the infrastructure.
Can you help? Please donate here - as little or as much as you can afford.
