Multi-functional house - the second building of the secondary school in Zambia, thanks to which local volunteers will be able to build entire houses

In summer, we built the first building of the secondary school – the workshop. 10 local volunteers were helping us. So they learned how to make bricks and how to build walls. The next building we will build in summer 2024 will be a multifunctional house. During the construction period of the entire secondary school, the house will provide accommodation for volunteers / construction workers. At the same time, it will serve as a model family house for all local people.

---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.

LET'S COME AND MAKE KIDS' DREAMS OF AN AVAILABLE SECONDARY SCHOOL A REALITY!
Thank you!


  • 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).

Design

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. 

Construction budget
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.

NRCS received 500.000 CZK grant


The NRCS project aims primarily at the construction of the second building of the secondary school – a multifunctional building.

We are proud to have a partner – a capable NNO in Zambia! And we’re also glad that although we don’t have any paid staff, we could help them win this grant with our assistance!

Congratulations and thanks to the Embassy of the Czech Republic!

According to our calculations, the multi-functional house costs 1,200,000 CZK so far. We want to raise part of the remaining CZK 700,000 in the current Christmas fundraiser, which you can support right HERE. Thank you!

Kdo se na střední školu těší?

 
Temwani chce být inženýrkou, Margret a Mapalo zdravotní sestrou. Do základní škole v Kashitu docházejí ze svých domovů až 4 km, což je na africké poměry vlastně prima. Co rádi dělají ve volném čase? 

Dnes je Giving Tuesday, světový den štědrosti a dobrých skutků!


Každý může být štědrý. Každý má něco, co může nabídnout: čas, odborné znalosti, peníze, věcné dary, jídlo, oblečení nebo jen udělat někomu radost.

My jsme se s projektem střední školy v Kashitu do Giving Tuesday zapojili.  Vy MŮŽETE TŘEMI ZPŮSOBY POMOCI, aby se sen dětí o dostupném vzdělávání změnil ve skutečnost:
POJĎTE DO TOHO S NÁMI! Děkujeme!
