115 beds so far!
So far, between our UK and NZ fundraising pages, we have raised enough to buy 115 beds from generous donations coming in from around the world. Thank you so much to all those who have contributed – you are incredible!
KAASO has been blown away by this fundraiser and Dominic and Rose have got some amazing things underway… Dominic has commissioned Nakazzi Rose, a parent with two children at KAASO who has her own welding company, to make the beds. Nakazzi Rose’s team has set up a satellite workshop on-site at KAASO and has been busy fabricating the bunk beds, working around the clock to make this happen. They have so far made 24 beds and are busy putting together more each day. The below photo shows the latest beds ready to be painted.
The KAASO gates are FINALLY due to reopen on Monday 10th January 2022 and children have already begun to arrive in preparation for the new school year – almost two years since many of them were last at school. They are so excited to see their new beds being made before their eyes.
Thank you again so much for all your donations. Your support means the world!
With huge thanks and love,
Unity is Strength, Emma (the KAASO volunteer co-ordinator), Dominic, Rose and the KAASO Family.
How the funds will be used
Each double decker bunk bed set is 350,000 UGX which is: £75
Or the cost of an individual bed is: £40
All funds will go to buying new double decker metal bunk beds for KAASO – and no amount is too small! Even if you can’t buy an entire bed, every pound counts so anything you can give will be put to good use – and greatly appreciated. Thank you.
