It may be school holidays here at Tumaini but we have been busier than ever! Thanks to some extra donations from St. Lukes in Nottingham and Christchurch in Southborough we have been able to do some much needed maintenance work.

We managed to buy tonnes of galana stone so that we could finally finish the path outside the High School classrooms. Galana is  natural sandstone which is quarried in pieces around 5mm thick. Once laid (like crazy paving) they are coated with special epoxy resin varnish to seal the slabs for a long lasting finish.

We are also working on some new office space as the work continues to grow, watch this space for photos!

The toilet block is coming along well – we have now added the “sunshine” air vents and rough cast paint to the outside. Fitting out the inside continues, but until the white tiles are in place it’s too dark for good photos.

Thanks for checking in on our progress, have a great week from all the team here.

All will become clear over the next few weeks – but as I discussed how the building was progressing our foreman made a comment and I said so they are “Happy Toilets!” he laughed so much I think we have a name! Let us know what you think!

The construction work is going well, it was a busy day laying the roof slab with everyone working so hard on one of the hottest days of the year.

We have now started on the internal works with door frames and pipes being fitted this week. We are on target to finish early May.

Thanks from all the team here.
