We are looking to put a boundary fence around our entire school campus to keep our kids, garden and facility safe.
Big Boys Hostel Roof
Our Big Boys Hostel roof is filled with cracks, every time it rains the boys beds get wet. A new tin roof will fix it and keep the monsoon out.
For more than 45 years our Nursery has kept our youngest ones dry, but the years have taken their toll and it is time for a facelift.
A family of five normally has one or two cars. Our family of over one hundred has two. We desperately need one more.

Learning Resource Center
This new building will host our library and computer lab and help to provide top quality education to our area!
We are looking to get a new angle for our workshop. An angle grinder that is! Our current tools are unsafe and need replacing.
We’re are looking to add this amazing piece of equipment to our arsenal of tools, it will reduce work time, effort and expense.
It’s a pretty simple project, we would love to get room numbers printed up and stuck on each of our doors of our school building.
Small Boy’s Bunk Beds
Our boys need new beds, eight stackable beds will be built in our workshop with metal frames and plywood bases.
For the last few years we have seen one construction after another happen here, we thought it was about time…
Our girls work really hard, after a long day we would love nothing more than for them to be able to kick their feet up and relax.
Cordless Hammer Drill
A new drill is an essential need for our maintenance team. This is not a drill!
Swimming Pool Pump
When the temperatures here reach 120ºF (48ºC) the pool is the only place for our kids to escape the heat. But what can we do when there is no water? We turn to you for the answer.
Paint Our School
After a massive installation of a 18,000 square foot tin roof our school is now in need of a repaint, help make that happen.
Our current air compressor really blows… well actually, it doesn’t. That’s the problem.

Even our visitors can have a hard time in the monsoon, we’re looking to make life a little easier by adding a 42m path.
We’d love to restock our toolbox. A few new screwdriver, some spanners, a hammer and a few other tools would help us get the job done!
Our playground is shifting and we would love to take our tire swing with it! It’s a pretty big job and we could use some help.
Our playground seesaw is so rotten, once you see it, you can’t unsaw it. Bring the play back into our playground!
A New Drill
WARNING! This is not a drill! We genuinely need a new drill and would love it if you could help out. You might say: We’re “screwed” without one.
Two Choir Stands
Our school choir has been working hard over the last few months. A set of new stands will help them raise their voices and their feet.
For all the electrical work, for the plumbing, for the installation of new windows and the removal of walls. A new hammer drill would be amazing!
Every day our girls walk to and from their hostel and our Dining Room, we’d love to see them keeping their feet clean.
We would be delighted to see our orphanage lit up at night by some new security lights! C’mon, it’s a bright idea!
Small Boys Hostel Drain
Our Small Boys Hostel is filling up with water every time it rains. Help us replace the collapsed drain pipe and keep our boys feet dry.
High Pressure Tank
Water is the key to life. Our current high pressure tank is 25 liters and is simply too small to meet our daily demands.
When it comes time to clean, a hose of this kind keeps us off our knees and onto more important tasks. Whether it’s paths, our pool or vehicles.
Small Girls Mirrors
Our 21 Small Girls here on the mission share one single bathroom, at the moment it is without any mirrors. THE HORROR!
We’re always moving things around the Mission, but most of the time we just use what we can find to get the job done.
Monsoon rains can make our mud paths difficult, especially for our younger and older members. Help keep feet our dry!
