WULUGU PROJECT UPDATE – JANUARY 2015
Larabanga Teachers’ Quarters and Murugu School
The teachers quarters at Larabanga, which we promised during our visit in June, were constructed and furnished ready to be handed over to the school on the 19th December 2014. Six teachers will move in to their own rooms, which will enable them to concentrate on teaching the pupils, without having to endure often long and atrocious commutes.
Following the official hand over to the Ghanaian education services; the committee traveled another 20km further into the scrub, to reach Murugu village on the edge of Mole game reserve. Once there the village welcomed them with a durbur (celebration) and were thanked by the local chief and district chief executive (Mayor) for providing the children of the village greater opportunities for their future.
Loans for Lukula
In memory of Karamu Nachina, £5,000 worth of micro loans was promised to the women of Lukula. These loans are being managed and distributed by Issac, the treasurer of Wulugu Project Ghana.
Continued worldwide support from Rotary
The tailoring trade aid boxes arrived safely in the northern region of Ghana. These boxes were taken and presented to Savelugu Vocational School by the committee and members of the local Tamale rotary club.
Tamale rotary were asked to support the charity by funding the drilling of bore holes, for fresh water at the various vocational schools.
We have received donations from Lowestoft Rotary, and also some donations from individual Rotarians.
