Help One Now sustains the operations of this school and the accompanying development work through our vulnerable child sponsorship program and our Help One Classroom campaign.
Help One Now has almost completed the building of a larger, more suitable dormitory for the girls of His Mercy School! This $50,0000 project is 80% funded, and 80% complete. This portion will fund the final building phase so that the girls can move in to their new space as soon as possible.
Currently, 17 students that are without a family, or whose home environment is unsuitable or unsafe for them to thrive, are sharing one large room at the school. They have very little space for privacy, quiet study, or relaxation. The new building, when it is complete, will provide much needed space for up to 56 girls. This will allow the Primary 6 and Primary 7 grade girls to also live and study at the school for the duration of each term, rather than spending valuable study time walking long distances to and from school.
The finished dormitory will have rooms for the girls and their personal belongings, as well as space for house mothers to help provide a stable, loving environment. There will be a rainwater collection tank to support washing sinks in each room and electricity provided by solar panels will enable the girls to study at night. This dormitory is vital to His Mercy School’s ability to provide a safe and comfortable learning environment for its students to succeed in school. Will you help us complete it?
