• we have raised over £380,000 for our schools

• schools have been provided with guttering and water tanks for the collection and storage of rainwater

• educational equipment has been provided

• teachers have been trained

• over 35 new classrooms have been completed

• desks, chairs and cupboards supplied

• headteachers' offices and a storeroom have been built

• teachers’ living quarters have been constructed (some teachers live on site due to the remoteness of the schools)

• latrine blocks have been constructed or repaired at all our schools

• 33 students are receiving secondary education thanks to the ACE Sponsorship Scheme

Assistance with transport has been received from British Airways, Flamingo Holdings, and DAS Air.

Cargo is delivered to Entebbe then transferred to Volcano Safaris Office in Kampala. They are the ground company for Discovery Initiatives. Ian Redmond, the conservationist, put Angela in touch with them a couple of years ago.

The cargo is then collected by the local MP who does the delivery to the schools. The MP is the Minister for Communications and Information and has been very reliable and also pays the handling fees at the airport. He has dealt with the last 2 cargoes.

All cargoes are full of educational equipment given by local Cornish schools.

This new latrine block has been built.

It is a vast improvement on the previous facilities - its cubicles actually have doors.

Beneath the building is a pit 30 feet deep which was dug by the pupils' parents.

The way in which funds provided by ACE are spent is decided by the trustees of ACE and supervised by our local representative, David Epidu. The District Education Officer, and one of the school inspectors, are also involved.

 
Cupboard

 

 

 

Security is essential.

The picture on the left shows the cupboard we bought to put our gifts into. Safe storage is important.

Two Locks

 

 

 

Here a teacher proudly shows that there are two locks on the door of a new classroom.

ACE always ensures that its contributions are safely stored and secure.



To date, ACE has carried out the following -

In the early years large amounts of educational materials were collected and shipped to the schools.

He also supervised the repainting of a large number of classrooms, doing a lot of the work himself

Libraries were reorganised in all the schools and sports facilities built.

The total he spent on the schools was £2,050.
