Construction d' écoles

Jusqu’au départ de notre projet, début de 2011, le village de Mushapo n’avait pas d’école propre. Ainsi, pour éviter que les enfants aient à se rendre à l’école chaque jour dans les villages voisins par un chemin très long et fatiguant et aussi pour permettre à plus d'enfants de recevoir une bonne éducation, ADH s’est fixé comme objectif la réalisation d’une école à Mushapo. Le projet d'école est durable : Plusieurs bâtiments scolaires et salles de classe spacieuses et lumineuses, construites en matériaux solides et durables, doivent permettre en permanence, par toutes les conditions météorologiques, un fonctionnement sûr de l’école. En outre, de nouveaux emplois importants peuvent être créés par la construction de l'école et du système scolaire dans la région rurale.

Production of brickwork continues

During the school holidays, our manager Jean took his entitled vacation to visit his family in Kinshasa. Our school principal Pierre will temporarily replace him during his vacation in order to supervise the work in Mushapo, especially the ongoing brick production. The manufacture of new bricks for the third school building and health centre is still running at full speed. Preparations are also being made for the new school year, to which we expect around 400 children in our primary school and 100 in our high school.

Water Reservoir

The new water reservoir is nearly finished: A deep pit was dug, interior walls were build out of bricks and faced with cement. Rainwater is collected from the roof of the school buildings and conducted into the reservoir. For this purpose, trenches were omitted. Additionally, plumbers embedded water pipes into the earth and connected them. Now the water can be obtained from the reservoir as required. Furthermore, the work on the new toilets has started and the production of thousand new bricks for the upcoming new buildings is running at full speed. Unfortunately, there were also many setbacks this month. Two children died of typhus due to the lack of medical care. This makes us all even more grateful for the prospect of the soon to be developed health center in Mushapo. It is urgently needed there. The land area, on which we will create the new health centre, is prepared for the construction at this moment.

German Embassy helps generously

Mrs. Manig, spouse of the German ambassador, who supervises mini-projects within the work of the embassy, visits our school project in Mushapo. During our visit of the new school areal, we inspect the old toilets (hole in the ground) and are happy to supply adequate new toilets with water flush, soak aways and hand washing facilities to the school in the near future. Work on the water reservoir has already started, a pit was constructed. We were also able to see, where the newly created health center will be located – the German Embassy sponsors all the three projects. We are greatly indebted to Mrs. Manig, who came all the way to Mushapo under difficult circumstances, and to the German embassy for their enormous support for our project. The fact, that despite many problems the implementation of changes is possible, boosts our hope, if don’t give up.

Finally! – Moving to the new school buildings

Lessons moved from the old temporary buildings and the brick building located on the former farm “SADR” to the new brick buildings on our own land. It was a special moment for everyone, for which the children were happy to help by cleaning the school grounds. Since the start of the project in 2011, a dream finally comes true after four exhausting years. Since we had to construct a water reservoir in the beginning in order to collect rainwater before dry season approaches in the following month, construction of the third new school building on our land has now to wait a little while. The possession of a local water supply is crucial for further construction projects, so we do not have to transport water from the nearest river located 80m further below in the valley.

The Urgency of our work

The second school building is almost finished and is soon ready for usage. The windows and doors are built, installed and decorated. This just happened right on time: during a violent storm two weeks ago, the temporary school building, which was exposed the most to the wind, was severely damaged and could no longer be used. Temporarily we use a few smaller farm buildings for lessons of the pupils. This shows that there is an urgent need to complete the new brick buildings on our grounds. Our plan is to have the two buildings completed at the most as soon as possible, so they can be used for lessons. Directly afterwards, we will work on the third building, so that regular school activities can take place in the new buildings. In the planning phase cement has to be provided. One the one hand, it is needed for pooring out the floors of the three school buildings. On the other hand, proper toilets with septic tanks and water reservoirs are planned so as to absorb water in rainy season for dry season.

Busy work continues

The masonry of the second school building has been completed. We record a slight delay in the construction of the third building due to transporting the bricks from production to the construction site. Parents, who previously helped with the transport, have to work on their fields at this time of year and are therefore unable to help. Therefore we have to employ to additional workers. These two students from upper school help us twice week transporting the bricks. They are happy to contribute with something to the school, since for an equal standard they would have to visit the secondary school in Tshikapa, which is about 60 km away. That would be too complicated respectively impossible for most of the pupils. Because there is at the moment no rainwater, we had to find new workers to take water from the fountain two km away to construction site.

The foundation for the third school building is layed

The construction is proceeding as planned. The roof of the third brick building on our campus is ready and the foundation is being laid. Our 10-hectare property around the new school buildings, which is overgrown with high elephant grass, bushes and small trees, is cleared in preparation for a new agricultural project. In Kinshasa we were able to meet with the German ambassador, Dr. Manig and his wife, who also works at the embassy. Just as the former ambassador both want to further support our project, which is a great help.

The second school building is almost finished

The second school building on the grounds is already half finished. The wooden structure with the tin roof is ready and the foundation is laid. One by one the bricks for the walls are carefully placed. The students from the secondary level help with transporting the bricks from the kiln to the site. At the same time more bricks are burned on the campus for the next brick building. Each of these buildings will consist of 4 classrooms, making the school, along with the two classrooms of the first building, have a total of 10 classrooms made of durable materials. This gives the school a good future because the temporary school buildings, the old farm houses made of mud, will not last much longer. All the other farm houses that were not constantly repaired have collapsed, and it is high time to move the school into the new brick buildings.
