HEre are some of the projects in East Africa that CanAssist is working on - or plans to start soon. Your donation can help us complete this work.
We have recently funded the installation of several rain water catchment tanks at the Holy Innocents Medical clinic in Uganda. This essential rural community clinic services a large number of individuals for a wide variety of issues. The clinic now has access to safe water for sanitation. They are currently in need of a new latrine for pregnant women. We are looking for funds to allow construction of this essential facility to begin soon. Your donation will help.
The Hope For Youth School in Uganda has received support from CanAssist over the past several years and the students are doing well. The school now has a teachers' quarters, a kitchen facility and 4 new classrooms. We will soon be funding a second fuel efficient wood burning stove for preparing lunches for the many students who attend. Thank you to all who donated to help make this dream a reality.
Canassist recently funded the repair of 10 borehole wells in the Mukono region of Uganda. These outdated community boreholes were in much need of repair as each well services 500-1200 people. Access to clean water is a basic human need which CanAssist is happy to support. And during the COVID Pandemic access to clean water is even more important. We just finished the tenth repair and there are many other communities waiting for your help. With your help we CanAssist! Please consider donating to help make fresh water available for more communities.
These pictures of the opening ceremonies at the S.P. Geddes School in Kenya, highlight a beautiful new classroom block which was built thanks to a generous grant from the ETFO (Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario) Humanity Fund. The school recently received funding to build classroom furnishings. When students return to school they will have new desks and chairs for improved learning conditions. We are currently collecting funds for a new 4 door pit latrine for girls at this school.
CanAssist has also constructed two pit latrines at the Obiaya school near Kisumu, Kenya, one for students and one for the teaching staff. These before and after photos clearly show the positive impact. We are going to build a third latrine soon for the girls of the school. Your donations can help to make this happen.
We are presently seeking funding for several new latrines, one at the Holy Innocents Medical Clinic, another at the Obiayo School in rural Kenya, and a third at the SP Geddes School. We also need funds to build school kitchen structures as well as for fuel efficient wood burning stoves. There is need for additional guttering and water catchment at the Kaswanga Girls' School on Rusinga Island, Kenya, new classrooms at the Great Challenge School in Uganda and additional borehole wells throughout East Africa as well as COVID hand washing stations at a variety of schools and medical clinics. We continue to buy books, furnishings and supplies for several schools throughout the district. All of these projects need your support. Click on the link to donate now!
