Rotary club pays for three Ugandan classrooms
The Rotary Club of Woy Woy has successfully raised funds to complete three new classrooms for a primary school in Buwampa, Uganda.
"The classrooms for the Divine Mercy school are nearing completion and will be ready for the first day of school for 2018 on February 5," said the club project manager Ms Sue O'Neill.
"The building is now fully rendered and ready for the veranda railings to be attached," Ms O'Neill said.
"The Buwampa community contributed much of the labour voluntarily to the classroom construction."
"We were required to have new latrines completed for the new school year and excavation work is now done and latrine construction work has started," she said.
"Our club provided funds for desks and chairs to be produced for the school.
"These are underway now and should be ready soon," she said.
Woy Woy Rotary also provided funds for women from an organisation called Pure Joy to attend an intensive training program on uniform-making in December.
"They have now returned to the Pure Joy centre and are training the other women in uniform making.
