It has finally started to rain ! Just over an inch so far (over the last week) but Sherston Musul are confident that the rains have now started. The water tanks are already more than half full - including the new Musul tank- new gutters are working and we have had only one leak. This is being fixed this week.

There is some water in all the dams and waterholes and Elephants, Impala and Kudu have been seen back in the area.

Half of your school fundraising efforts were used to prepare Sherston Musul school for the rains, build and install new deep guttering and provide a 6000 litre water tank - Thank you to everyone for your support !

The remainder of your donations will go towards half of the money needed for the new Kitchen and Food store block.

Money raised by the Mt Kenya trip has almost raised the remaining 50% of money needed to start the Kitchen block. As the rains are critical to building in the region Mr & Mrs Liddle have agreed to fund the remaining money required so we can start this build in the coming months. Building in the drought can double build costs as you have to buy and transport water to the school to mix cement etc.

If you would like to make an individual substantial donation for the next

priority project the School Accomodation Block, you will have your name

placed on a donor sign that will adorn the building!!
