Where are we now
The initial land purchase, construction of a storage house, a covered outdoor working area and sanitary installations have been secured so far. We are currently working on the first two units, the office and therapy block, and we plan to finish them in early 2023. With the currently available funding, we will be able to finish these two units and do some initial landscaping around these buildings, and therefore be able to move operations to the new centre. We have an amazing team of local artisans working on the project, equipped with all the necessary tools. Supported by the administrative team of KCDC.
An indication of our team’s capacity:
31% funding already raised
80% expertise already found
100% materials / equipment already found
100% builders already found
Finance: € 60,000
Through the modular design of the project, it can be built unit by unit to further extend the services and training KCDC can offer without disturbing current operations.
The team of “Bauen für Orangefarm” will continue to offer courses at the University of applied sciences in Munich and bring students to Uganda to support the project and learn more about construction, culture, traditions, and the environment of Uganda.
Each of the six therapy-related units costs around 60.000€ to build. Any contribution to the project will help KCDC to reach its goal of raising more awareness, reaching more children with disabilities, and guiding them to a bright future.
We are looking for some support to help us further detail our rainwater harvesting system and plan the hydrotherapy pool, including the heating system.
Stuff: Equipment & tools
To work even more efficiently, we would be glad to receive electrical tools like drills, battery drills, jigsaws, circular saws, grinders, planers and sanders.
We are more than happy to welcome Volunteers for this project. Our aim is always to have our summer school groups of people with different backgrounds to bring them together and exchange their knowledge and ideas.
Dates for the next Summer School will be announced on the BfO Website (Probably July/August 2023)
