Already after 3 years in
Clubhouse, the 300 m2 we have in Clubhouse are too few.
With over 150 children, it has become quite tight...
We therefore bought the corner plot (150 m2) - to the
of the existing Clubhouse, and started building perimeter
walls, a store room and a new toilet block there in
October 2008. Where the old toilets are - upper
right on the drawing, there will be a double story house
with classroom downstears and offices upstairs.
Below are a few pictures showing the progress:
from Askøy Videregående Skole (see
participated in the project. The foundation for the
toilet block was among the first started. Mr Mbai is
the building leader. Detail from the basins - the
flow of water between the two chambers is very important.
The laying of the slab above the basins is prepared.
perimeter wall is up and nearly complete, and the toilet
block in the background is also on the way to completion.
To the left we see the "old" Clubhouse. It used to
have a rather ugly backside. Now it is plastered and
looks much nicer.
ponders the next move concerning new building where the
old toilets were. We see the old toilets are now
down, and the back wall / perimeter wall still standing.
Pavement stones are put aside for later use.
building is starting to come up, ground floor nearly
complete. Between the new building and the toilets
we see the store - quite a spacious room that will be very
practical since we really didn't have a storeroom earlier.
Now it is
starting to take shape! The new building seen from
view is good from up here...
The new building
is near completion.
it look beautiful?
details from upstairs:
library doesn't have many books so far, but we have gotten
a couple of donations toward equipping the library.
The shelves will soon be filled!
social worker, Florence Kibicho finally got an office in
Clubhouse! (just beside the library). Marianne is visiting.
of the "old" Clubhouse:
who are extra observant, will notice that even the "old"
Clubhouse looks new. That's because we put in new windows
and doors, and painted the place. Now we feel it
looks very presentable!
