Gilgal Springs Academy for disadvantaged kids

Hello my lenders,
Once again I would like to shortly update you about the Gilgal Springs Academy for the Disadvantaged that you have been lending.
We started by buying one packet of dustless chalk,then a desk, uniform for 10 pupils but now we are talking big. From the church building,we moved to our rented 10 classrooms and finally last year December we bought our own land that we are yet to build our complete school.
Challenges have been many but we as a group can smile and work harder to assist and reach more children. More than 500 children are still awaiting to join us if only the school construction will complete soon. Most private schools have been closed down because of Covid-19 setbacks and current new Government rules.
I am happy to share with you also about our success in empowering the first 8 vulnerable women through our partnership with Kenya women finance. My prayer is that in the next five years,we should be lending to women through Gilgal Springs Sacco.
Currently I am working on building some temporary classrooms in preparation full school opening in January 2021.
I have requested for Ksh. 100000 not because it is enough but I will use to build one class room for grade 4, buy sanitizer, hand washing equipment and masks.
Least but not last, I would like to thank you very much for having been patient with me when things seemed not working well. We Gilgal Springs Academy community are very proud of you,Our lenders.
