Marrianne Zeldenrust came for a work visit to see how the project is growing and discuss the plans for 2011
Below is the site where the visitors will get their rooms so this next visiting season they will be staying in the children’s village.

The builders are going on with the contrete bars for the columns while waiting for the drivers to fill the rest of the foundation with rocks.
In the meantime the workers are roofing the workshop. Something we should have done right at the beginning of the project but by then we just didn’t have the funds.
Soon the boys can work in the shade because working in the Tororo sun is rather HOT!..

Wk42, Building site in Osia
The throwing in of the rock is very hard work but the boys of the neighborhood are really good at it. They usually make their living from loading lorries. Down you can see the boys casting a concrete beam on the foundation. If you look carefully you can see the metal workers at work on the roof of the workshop (after some years of burning in the sunshine they are finally tired of it I guess)

Wk 41 – 2010: the work on the 1st classroom block continues.
Some of the walls of the foundation are up and soon we will start filling the foundation with those rocks that you can see piled up in front of the building. All this by hand…
Below you can see Riend de braal helping with some plumbing work. Some pipes have to be removed before we can start piling rocks in the foundation.

All column-footings are casted, the work is now focussed on the walls of the foundation. In the meantime the driver has to transport 140 truckloads of rock to fill the space up to the groundfloor of the first block.
18th September, 2010
Today, we had the pleasure of coming together with the complete team, the builders, children, staff and leaders of KIMBILO Children’s Village – Osia and not only witness, but also contribute to the casting of the first column of the classroom block for the primary school.
We asked the children: “what do the people who don’t know Jesus do on a moment like this?..” They all answered quickly that they kill a child to put under the foundation!! And indeed, that is what many people do who put their trust in the witchdoctor rather than the Living God.
We prayed, sang and were happy that we know that these children will be protected and will end up being a student in this very building.
