#1 WATER WELL AT SCHOOL
As our school has grown, and offering two meals per day, we were in desperate need to have a fresh water well near our school kitchen.
#2 TEACHER & STUDENT DESKS
With 10 classrooms requires ALOT of desks. Currently we need 18 - three seater student desks, and 75 - two seater student desks, and 10 teachers desks.
cost of this project is approx $6,800.00
WATER WELL UPDATE
Special thanks to 2017 walk-a-thon in Sylvan Lake and additional donor. As of Dec 5th, 2018, this well is complete with water pump, and an abundant amount of fresh water.
August 2018, we were able to purchase all teachers desks and fill current classrooms with student desks.
#3 STAFF ROOM/ LIBRARY
STAFF ROOM-Currently we have 14 teachers and absolutely no place for them to go to. Whether to take a break or a quiet place to correct students book work. We need a place where they can meet together privately and plan for their day.
LIBRARY-As our school is so very rapidly growing, it has become more and more pressing to have a proper library where the children can freely come and read books and help excel them in their education.
This staff room/library will be a two room building to save on construction costs.
cost of this project is approx $21,000.00
We are thrilled to announce that by the end of 2018, our library/staff room building will be complete and looking forward to setting up library with team 2019.
Currently we had one projector that was used for home, Touch School and Touch Community Church. It is now beyond repair. So we are looking at a few projectors which will also allow us to show Christian videos in church as well as educational purposes.
Cost of this project is approx $3,200.00
#5 TREE PLANTING
This is a project that will benefit Touch in the future. We are looking at planting eucalyptus trees that we will harvest for sale of lumber.
Cost is approx $1,200.00
In July 2018, we had the Med-Ed team visit Ogooma and were able to bring one projector. This will be a great help in both health and spiritual education.
Tree planting will be an on-going project. Currently we have planted approx 1200 euclyptus tree.
To keep our land (crops) protected, from grazing animals, we are fencing all of Touch farm land as well as school.
Cost of this project is approx $55,000.00
#7 STAFF HOUSING
As Touch grows more staff housing is required. Currently we are very much in need of a matrons room at the home, and more teachers housing.
Cost per housing unit is $3,500.00
#8 PATIO BRICK WORK
We are looking at brick work to build walk ways around home. As anyone who has been there knows how muddy things get around the home when it rains. This leads to an incredible amount of additional cleaning and makes it hard for staff to keep up with 95 children.
#9 PORTABLE GENERATOR
We are thrilled to say that we are able to offer our teaching staff proper housing as many have to travel a great distance. We will be building another three block staff housing in the beginning of Jan 2019.
PATIO BRICK PROJECT
January 2019, the "GO (Gods Outreach) Team will be heading to Ogooma and will be completing the patio brick project around the home & kitchen, which will aid in cleanliness with this many children.
