How you can help

The population at Arnoldine Secondary School has increased since we started our partnership in 2015. The number of teachers has increased from 5 to 9, and the number of students has increased from 7 to approximately 300. This means that the School needs more classroom space, more clean water-storage tanks, and more housing for teachers.

Project A: Water Tanks

Four water tanks are needed at the school and at teachers’ housing. Each tank holds 1,250 gallons of water. A $400 donation will buy one tank.

Project B: Bricks for the Second Classroom Block

8,000 bricks are needed to complete this project. $70 will purchase 1000 bricks.

Project C: Ceiling Boards for classrooms and teacher housing

The cost for ceiling boards to complete the entire building is approximately $800.  

Project D: Plumbing

This is a big project. Both the old renovated building and the newly built teachers’ housing are going to need plumbing. 7-toilets with toilet seats, 7-bathroom sinks, 7-kitchen sinks, septic tanks, pipes and other accessories. Estimated costs for some of the plumbing supplies:

A complete toilet costs $150,             A bathroom sink costs $100,

Each kitchen sink costs $90                 A septic tank for teacher housing costs several thousand dollars

A small donation will go a long way

$15 = 100lb cement bag

$25 = Stationary for 10 kids

$50 = 10 textbooks
$100 = 2 desks

$150 = 10 sq. ft. of completed classroom space
