Well the busy month is starting to wind down here at Ciyanjano. The schools go back into session next week and things will be pretty quiet here until the Independence week in October. Since the beginning of July we've hosted a lot of groups at Ciyanjano. One of things that really hit home is the need for an appropriate toilet and shower block to help meet the needs of the churches we serve. This was especially true this last week when we hosted an AWANA camp with over 150 kids. Our four pit latrines and our grass, village-style bathing rooms were crowded with large lines and long waits. For a group this large they spend a good deal of the day coordinating bucket showers and toilet use. In order to host groups this size we really need a bigger and more hygienic toilet facility. Pit latrines and messy, smelly, and without sinks and lots of soap we are at risk of children passing infections to each other after and during use of our current facilities. Our fearless director has jumped through a dozen hoops to get through the various red tape and we approved to build a ten toilet, ten shower ablution block with a bank of sinks for the men's and women's rooms. We also have a very generous grant to get started. What we need is the rest of the money to complete this project. We are planning on breaking ground in September and God willing, we will be finished before the next busiest month - December. If you like to make a donation towards this project please click here!
