At Advent stands in Prague parishes, donors contributed 31,000 CZK gross to the project.
You can continue to support the project of the secondary school in Kashitu through the main collection here.
---original fundraising campaign text ---
By building a multifunctional house, Kashitu volunteers will learn to build entire buildings, including the roof. This will enable them to build entire family houses. Thanks to this, they will have more orders. In this way, they should also bring profit to the local NRCS community, which will participate in financing the construction of the high school within its possibilities.
- The collection takes place until January 7th, 2024.
- It is also possible to support the project of the Secondary school in Kashitu by purchasing items at the Advent Stalls in Prague on Sundays 3, 10 and 17 December.
- For all donations, you will receive a donation receipt in January, which you can use to deduct the tax base (applies to taxpayers in the Czech Republic).
The design of the house will be created by volunteers - builders from the Implementation Team. It will reflect the way how local people live. On the picture, you can see one of possible versions.
We have calculated the budget at 1,200,000 CZK so far. We have applied for CZK 500,000 in a grant from the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Lusaka, the remaining funds will be sought from companies and during the spring fundraising campaign.
