BENEFITING: Life To Life Global Building Group Inc
Amanda and Tiffany will be traveling to East Africa in June to help build a school in the village of Namusisi in the Iganga District of Uganda. This trip is to help build a primary school that will serve the children in the village of Namusisi. Every summer since 2004, a group of Ames High Students and teachers have gone to Uganda to help build schools. So far their efforts have produced a girl’s secondary school in Tororo and three primary schools in Iganga District. We will work directly with Ugandan bricklayers and carpenters in rural Namusisi.
This project is important to Amanda and Tiffany because we know how much of a difference the schools make to the village of Namusisi. Over the past couple years Amanda has participated in Team World Vision finishing the Chicago Marathon and raising funds for clean water, and we know how critical and life changing something as basic as clean water and education are for many communities in Africa. When Tiffany shared her eagerness to join the Ames High School team going to Uganda and that they needed a chaperone, Amanda had no hesitations as both know how life changing the school and education will be for the village of Namusisi. We are both so humbled to be a part of the Uganda team finishing the school this summer!!
This year’s project will be Phase 3/3 of building a primary school in the village of Namusisi in Iganga District. Our focus will be constructing classrooms. Typically these projects spend around $35,000 to build seven classrooms of brick, cement, timbers, and iron sheet roof. As of our participation in this project, Amanda and Tiffany are raising funds to help pay for building materials and to help cover travel. Both Amanda and Tiffany have been saving since we decided to make this trip, but we are hoping our friends and family can join us and help make this trip a reality.
The organization that oversees these projects is called Life to Life Global Building Group. To see pictures from previous projects go to globalbuilding.org.
