HOPE SCHOOL - BURUNDI
New tin Roof on Hope School's Library 2015
Grace Community School, Mazyopa, Zambia
After completing a new water well and a two-classroom building, we have decided to build another two room classroom, identical to the first. Project was completed in 2014 for $16,000.00.
Kim Jones House, Marangu, Tanzania - Water Catchment System
In an effort to supply potable water for the orphans and staff, a 100,000 liter tank was constructed underground to catch the water from a nearby stream. A pump sends the water into two storage tanks which supplies the house with water by gravity feed. Guttering was also installed on the house to catch rain water for flushing toilets.
Kim Jones House - Security Fence
A new fence has been funded and completed in 2014.
St. Louis Evangelical School - St. Louis, Senegal
Another classroom was completed on the third story of the school in the summer of 2013.
Grace School and Well, Mazyopa, Zambia
In January 2013, a work team traveled to Zambia to help build a two-room block building which is now being used for classrooms. Situated about 15 miles from the capitol city of Lusaka, 380 children attend this school and the poverty is overwhelming. Most classrooms are mud huts with only one block building. The FFHIA has also conducted hydro-geological studies and determined the feasibility of a water well. The water well has been installed and is now serving the school. The ground water is highly contaminated and cholera is rampant.
Hope School - Burundi!
Two 2-room classrooms have been built for the 9th and 10th grade as well as the library/science lab previous mentioned. This school serves 400 children from the Batwa, Hutu, and Tutsi tribes.
Kim Jones House Completed and Dedicated February 1st, 2012!
The orphanage being built on the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Tanzania is being named KIM JONES HOUSE AT GIHON SPRINGS. Kim Jones, who died in November 2010 of breast cancer, was a friend of the Foundation for Hope in Africa. She had a love for orphaned children and made a trip to Brazil to help a local orphanage in 2005. Kim, her husband Casey, and their business Wynn Jones & Associates, have been consistent donors to the Foundation for many years.
Upon her death, family, friends, and Wynn Jones & Associates donated money which will cover about half of the cost of the orphanage. As recognition for their generosity, FFHIA Directors unanimously voted to name the new facility after Kim. The family was honored by the gesture. It is in her memory that we name this orphanage KIM JONES HOUSE AT GIHON SPRINGS. The Board of Directors wishes to thank Casey, the Jones family, and Wynn Jones & Associates for their kindness to orphaned children in Tanzania. We also thank all other donors who have made this project possible.
