Did you know that when the school was initially remodeled, it was made to use an air conditioning system to cool and circulate the air? Did you know that up until now, the school hasn’t had one? Our 2017 annual fundraiser is going to be for the installation of an air conditioning unit! We’re calling it COOL THE SCHOOL!

Once the hot weather hits, our classrooms get super-hot. The windows were not made to open, so hot, stagnant air fills the rooms. It is practically impossible to focus on learning when temperatures are in the high 30s C. If we raise 40.000 euros/dollars by August 1, then we can have air conditioning installed in our classrooms and offices this summer.

Would you please start to pass the word to your friends and family members? Next week you will receive a brochure about the project and information about how to make a donation. This year we are going to make donations possible on our website in addition to doing a bank transfer. We will also be asking every student to bring in the names and email addresses of at least five people that they could ask to help us meet our goal. Every grade that has 100% participation will enjoy an ice cream party at the beginning of June.

We told the staff yesterday and the students today about the project. There was unanimous enthusiasm for the prospect of having a cool school by the time they return in August. Would you please prayerfully consider whether you could give the school a gift for this project? 500 euros would provide air conditioning for one child. 4000 euros would cool one classroom. If we all work together and network within our communities, then we can meet or even exceed our 40.000 euro goal.

We are excited to see how God meets this need. In August, we’ll all be saying SCHOOL IS COOL!

Because of His Faithfulness,
