eu can aid! and TDT recently decided to continue encouraging the village leaders to identify their priorities and to develop a Village and School Development Plan for 2018 to 2021. The cooperation between eu can aid! and TDT will be, therefore, extended and will come to an end in September 2021
An anonymous and generous donation received by eu can aid! contributed to start positively the program for year four
Extended program: September 2018- September 2021
Construction of a toilet for schoolteachers
This implementation contributes to a better general learning and teaching condition and corresponds to one of the priorities for the community and it is based upon a strong involvement of villagers: they helped in collecting sand and stones and in digging the pit hole.
eu can aid and TDT financed this installation with the global cost of 1,500 €
Construction of a supplementary room for the dispensary
Limited space such as decent delivery ward for admission of maternal cases (pre and post-delivery) and good medical facilities and materials especially delivery beds, blankets and bedsheets is among the major hindering factors for quality health services at Marumba dispensary.
This situation leads to unnecessary congestion in the existing small delivery room and makes most of pregnant women to be unwilling to deliver at Marumba
The goal was to improve access to quality services for the rural community around Marumba through construction of health infrastructures such as clinic, purchase of essential drugs and medical equipment.
A supplementary room for the dispensary was then constructed; medical equipment and some stock of drugs were provided with a global cost of 7,000 €
Reconstruction of a classroom
It was a matter of rehabilitating a classroom which has been constructed by the villagers themselves before our program started. It had just the essential elements (wall and roof) but there was no floor, and everything was very basic.
eu can aid co-funded the rehabilitation with the sum of 1,020 €
Construction of a classroom for the kindergarten
A new project proposal was received concerning the construction of a kindergarten. This proposal is a follow-up of our mission in October 2018 where villagers expressed the wish as a matter of priority to build a small kindergarten for their kids. 43 kids were staying outside under the cashewnut tree and getting their education in all weather conditions. The class has been constructed with the same building criteria like the recently constructed classrooms.
eu can aid participation amounts to 1,794 €.
PCs for the school and solar panels for the maternity
One set of projects for future cooperation discussed for the people of MARUMBA was proposed for support.
The first request for equipment of the primary school was received during our partner’s visit in site. This equipment will be used (and kept safe) by the headteacher and improve learning conditions especially during the nationally organized exams.
Furthermore, the recently financed extension of the Maternity Unit should be equipped with solar power in order to improve reception of patients during nighttime.
The required equipment and solar panel have been provided and eu can aid’s participation amounts to 3,500€.
