Every day food for the children is prepared by the mothers and volunteers of the Action Committee. The cooking is done on a fire. During the raining season of last year, a roof was made for cooking underneath. This was intended as a temporary solution. There is a great need for a new cooking place. Certainly because the kitchen is close to the school, so the smoke comes in when the wind blows at that direction. This is not good for the health of the children. The kitchen is also very small, which means that cooking takes a lot of time. That is why we want to build a new, large, covered kitchen with a daycare center where the children can eat. The new kitchen has a special way to make fire, so that little wind can come in and therefore much less wood will be needed.
In the meantime, we have enough resources to start this project. The progress of this project will be shared on the website and social media of the For a Change Foundation. Do you want to support another project? View all our projects on our website.
Update June 2020The project of building a new kitchen has started. The first materials are delivered and they have started making the foundation. It is already showing clearly how big the kitchen is going to be.
Building progressThe building of the kitchen has started. The foreman and his workers are really working hard. It is amazing to see the daily progress. Watch here the photo's and movies of the progress. It really looks promising and we can't wait to see a finished kitchen and to use it daily!
It is so amazing now that the kitchen is ready and being used daily! We have been looking forward to use the kitchen for long time and the first experiences are very good. We couldn't expect otherwise, when we compare this kitchen with the formal one. There is so much more space now to cook and prepare the food and with the combination of running water, it is just perfect! The mothers are very excited with the new kitchen, and so are we. Watch the movie here on the right for an impression. That says more than a thousand words. Many thanks to all sponsors who have made this project possible.
