Nandarasi Secondary School Dorm Fire Update

In May of this year, there was an electrical fire in the boys dormitory of the Nandarasi Secondary School in Karima. The dormitory was completely destroyed. You can see our original post here. Well, we are happy to report that as of earlier this month, the new block of the boy’s dorm has been completed and is ready for occupation! Here is a photo of the dorm from the outside.

Another exciting update is that with the help of donations, 30 bunk beds made of metal were able to be purchased and given to the school. See the picture below of the beds being presented to the school. Those that were present include the School Principal, the School Board Chairman, the PTA Chairman, the District Education Officer and The Students Representative. They greatly appreciated the contribution noting that it was only The 410 bridge that responded to their request for support so thank you to all who helped make this happen. The school is still needing 10 additional bunk beds and also bedding for all the beds (80 beds total) so if you would like to donate, please visit our website here.
