(DR) Algodon Library

Project Country: 
Dominican Republic
Visibility : 
Hidden

COTN's Village Partnership Program in Algodon does not have the space for storage of books for student use. In order to encourage reading, the school would like to have a library. Your generous gift will make this possible!

Our plan is to build a second floor on an existing building and use the space as a library. Students could come individually and as a class to use the library facilities.

(UG) Firewood Covering

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility : 
Hidden

In both the primary and secondary sections at our school, the firewood for the kitchens are stored outside. This causes three problems for the school. 

First, during the rainy season, the firewood used for cooking gets soaked and the food for the children and the staff is served late which interrupts the learning throughout the day. 

Second, because the firewood is just stored outside, snakes love to live there. This is obviously dangerous for our kids and staff.

Haiti
Visibility :

Several official documents need to be translated from English to French, so they can be understood by COTN's in-country staff in Haiti. These critical documents provide details about the standards all COTN staff must meet in serving the children. 

Your generous gift today will help make this translation possible, thereby improving the Haitian staff's ability to provide a high level of care for the children. Thank you!

COTN's Children’s Homes in Sierra Leone presently have one water well (hand pump) which the children and staff use for drinking, laundering, watering of the backyard garden, flushing toilets, and other domestic work.
 
But the hand pump on the well develops problems too often, causing shortages of drinking water for the entire COTN campus, including the offices and school.
 
When there is a shortage of water due to the breakdown of the hand pump, children go all around searching for water, some fin

(SL) Pig Pen Rehabilitation

Project Country: 
Sierra Leone
Visibility :

The roof, pillars, floor, and doors of the piggery at the COTN-Sierra Leone farm have become too old and weak. The inner pens are presently locked with a piece of wire. The livestock attendants find it difficult to clean, feed, and attend to the animals during hot periods. It's even more difficult for the veterinarians when they come to check on the animals.

(UG) School Urinals

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility : 
Hidden

We have seen a big problem in overcrowding at our school bathrooms. For a variety of reasons, this is not a good thing. We are especially concerned about the privacy of our older girls. Right now there is little space to distinguish between the boys' toilets and the girls' toilets.

COTN-Uganda has made some adjustments internally to help the situation, but it is not enough to alleviate the number of people that use the toilets. Adding a urinal separate for the boys will help us in this area.
