-concrete to lay the slabs in the toilets and teachers acoomodation

-toilet features (bowls, sinks, etc)

- PVC pipes for all plumbing works

- nuts, bolts and steel rod.

What we can offer to  sponsors is te mentioned them in all our communications as well as in the metal plaque with the list of sponsors at the building.


Work force:

We could use volunteers to come and help at different stages of the building

Funding support:

We need financial resources to purchase the solar energy systems as well as water filters and water pumps. With this systems we can make sure that the building will have a constant supply of energy, potable water and sewage treatment

Hello team! I am very interested in the project you are showing since i am very enthusiastic about building these buildings. I am a very handy person from the art academy in Rotterdam, Netherlands. I am good with wood and metal and very willing to work hard. Can you tell me how far the project is and in what stage I could help, thank you. Greetings Leon van Lier
