The Commission sent a team of volunteers to Kenya to renovate a primary school at Pala. A grant from the Rotary club of Jersey supported by the local charity Help From The Rock has already built a block of new classrooms and the project team undertook work on the dilapidated older part of the school.
Work included some bricklaying, replacing roof panels, making concrete floors and painting amongst other tasks. For some three years now Jersey has been supporting the village of Nyalkinyi in the Homa Bay district of Kenya. The village of Pala, designated by the Kenyan Government as an area of high poverty, is close to Nyalkinyi and the two are developing close ties as a farm supported by Jersey is sited between the two villages, it is hoped that the farm will eventually provide food for the schools in both villages.
The Commission sent a team of volunteers to Uganda to provide food storage facilities, accommodation, latrines and a borehole for the Luweero community farming cooperative.
The Diocese has large areas of scrub land which are being cleared by ladies action groups to provide 25 acres of useable farming land. The Commission has undertaken several projects to the Luweero district, although not all within the same area and this project will provide further income generation to the community.
A total of 15 volunteers were selected to undertake the project over a three week period comprising of both experienced and new volunteers.
This project was to construct a new kindergarten in the Ger district, Mongolia. The previous facility was a wooden house comprising of two classrooms, a washing room and a kitchen, all of which were not in keeping with government regulations and Government officials advised that the building breaches health and safety standards and should be demolished.
