Nieuws uit Maranghada!
Al meer dan 25 jaar zamelen de leerlingen en leraren beeldende kunsten van de Kunstacademie Noord-Limburg met tal van creatieve projecten geld in voor de meisjesschool in Maranghada in India. Dominik Martin, de drijvende kracht achter deze activiteiten, ontving afgelopen week dit bericht uit India:
Here is the project of Generator. The school and hostel was facing the problem of water for drinking and sanitation purpose. In summer the only well used to dry up .Children and teachers had to hunt for water outside the campus. Hostel children were accompanied to a far away pond for bathing and washing clothes once in a week. Green vegetables and fruit plants and trees would die. In2018-19 we were supported to dig one very successful deep bore well. Since then there is plenty of water for the whole campus. We even gave water connection to RC boys school in the adjacent campus. Since electricity supply here is very poor and very much irregular, though we had water, we were deprived of it. Hence this need of a generator. The project of power generator is complete. We now get more than enough clean and sweet water for drinking and sanitation purpose and also for irrigating the vegetable and fruit garden. We are very happy and satisfied with the supply of electricity in the whole campus. Children have light in their dormitory and study room. Whenever there is power cut, the power generator supplies electricity instantly. All this is because of your kind concern and generosity towards our less privileged children. Thank you and God’s blessing in your work of charity. Please find a few pictures of the project. Hope it will fulfil your purpose.
Sincerely yours, Sr. Matilda"
