Cooperation with local construction companies and craftsmen
The planned projects are implemented with local builders and craftsmen. Cooperation with the responsible parties is non-bureaucratic and very reliable. Our architect, Mr Mbaruck, is an integral partner to the Foundation and supports us in many administrative tasks as well. We monitor the progress of the project by having Board members and ambassadors both on-site as well as via e-mail or telephone.
It is the merit of all these people, in close co-operation with the architect and master-builder that all the buildings were well built and no donated funds were unnecessarily spent.
Projects in Bunju B
The project was built in several phases. The first phase included a children's home, a laundry, two staff houses, a house with two nursery rooms and a small kitchen and a toilet. In addition, the entire area was secured with fences and access gates. This was the most expensive phase as we had already included some parts of the infrastructure for the second phase.
In summer 2011, after completing the second phase, we were able to relate the future administration building where we have temporarily placed our school (first, second and third grade) until the school building is ready. On the roof of the administration building, the solar panels were mounted.
The first school building has open its door in June 2012 and since July 2012 we are able to accommodate 180 children in the dining room and the associated school kitchen is in operation.
At the end of 2012 we took three other school buildings in operation, each with two classrooms.
Plans for the construction project Bunju B:
The nursery in Itobo, Tabora region is also supported by our Foundation Tuwapende Watoto. Thanks to donations we are able to offer a daily hot meal for up to 100 children.
