Ntunga is a small village in Rwanda. Currently, two women use outdated appliances in a makeshift kitchen to cook one meal a day for 50 children. With your help, we can build a brand new kitchen and dining room for these children and provide them with their one meal a day (known as "Break Tea" (tea and bread, short cake or an egg)). Skip1 will rebuild their kitchen, add a dining room and equip it with all new appliances, pots, pans, plates & dishes and utensils. The dimensions of the proposed kitchen project are approximately 26x36 feet. $20,000 builds the new kitchen and covers the costs of getting new appliances and utensils. $2,435 will allow us to feed the children for 6 months after the kitchen has been built.
Skip1.org Projects Around the World
Muleete WellA new solar-powered well in Uganda
Updated: 7/11/11: With gas prices being as high as they are in Uganda right now, our new mission is to create sustainability by implementing a solar powered generator vs. a gas powered one. We have raised the additional funds for this project. Thank you so much for your continued support.
The Skip1.org Muleete Project (in association with Africa Renewal Ministries) is located in south central Uganda, approximately 12.1 km (7.5 miles) southeast of Mubende. The project supports a school with approximately 300 children in attendance, a church, and a soon to be completed clinic. A small village is close by and the project enjoys a close and supportive relationship with the local village families. The new water supply system for the Muleete Project is predicated on using the existing well, refurbished and equipped with a downhole submersible pump and powered by an array of high efficiency solar panels, to provide clean drinking water to the project and surrounding local populace. The proposed new system is a modular design that can be expanded in the future to meet increased demand.
Caballona KitchenA kitchen in the Dominican Republic
At the Lumbrera de Caballona School in the Dominican Republic, more than 50 kids go the entire day without a single meal. Most of the children don't eat dinner the night before. Skip1.org is building a brand new kitchen on the school property and providing those who work in it with the necessary pots, pans and appliances to get it up and running. We are also building more bathrooms for the kids since there's currently only one toilet for the entire school. Funds will also go to supporting their feeding program (the food & labor costs) with opportunities to extend that feeding program per fundraising initiatives and programs via Skip1.org. Any additional donations received for this specific project will go directly to extending the duration of the feeding program at the school.
We are supplying the kitchen with the following items: 3 pots, 3 big wooden spoons, 5 large trays, 1 industrial stove, one LP gas tank for the stove, 10 rectangular tables, 3 large colanders, 10 large pitchers, 5 large trays, 100 plates, 100 spoons, 100 chrome tumblers, 3 wash basins (1 large & 2 medium), 2 large buckets for water, 3 medium buckets, 2 large water thermos, 50 plastic chairs and 1 refrigerator.
Chilca KitchenA kitchen in Peru
March 23, 2012 UPDATE: Thanks to YOU we are almost done building the kitchen and dining area. Check out our pics on flickr.
"At risk" children - currently living in Lurín, Pamplona Alta, Chilca and a dozen of other surrounding "young towns" - need a safe place where they can be fed, go to school and flourish. In the small community of Chilca (located about 45 minutes outside of Lima), there is a great opportunity. ACED owns about two acres of land in Chilca where they currently run a private school for about 50 children and a new bakery that provides supplemental income for the school and its programs. The school is called I.E.P. Jireh - Papa Leon XIII - it has classrooms, a small playground, a multipurpose room and teachers. A family lives on-site and oversees the school. On the same plot of land, right next to the school, is a dormitory, a kitchen facility and a well that sit empty. This is the orphanage. The dorm can accomodate 32 kids and 4 teachers. It has beds and toilets and showers.
