New Main Hall/Community Center to provide space for school and community activities

Our Main Hall/Community Center is nearly completed. We still need for completing the roof, installing windows, doors, and concrete floor.

main hall/community center in rural uganda
The structure is large. It can be divided into three rooms which could be used as classrooms as well. The hall will be multipurpose as a community center. Among its uses include:
– National examination center for S.4 students (before we had to send them somewhere else and pay the other school)
– School assemblies
– Theater – student dance/music/drama performances
– Community workshops
– Village banking meetings (they have been meeting outside under the trees)
And anything else as needed.
Many THANKS to the Hall family,  College of St. Benedict/St. John’s University, and other donors whose gifts over the last few months have made this project possible. We are very grateful.
What’s remaining to finish:
– Roofing: 80 more iron sheets for back side: $10 each – roughly $800
– Windows: 19 and each at $160 for total of $3040  (including glass)
– Doors: 3 each costing $180 for total of $540 (including glass)
– Floors (cement, gravel, sand etc): $2,250
– Plastering inner walls (cement, sand): $925
– Plastering outer walls (cement, sand): $1250
– Veranda (gravel, sand,gravel): $470
– Painting: $430
TOTAL: $9,700 for fully complete the project
The main piece is the roof, windows, and doors. Once those are in, the building can be used as we finish the rest gradually.
