Kabami was enrolled into the scheme in 2002.

The headmaster of Kabami is Emmanuel. He had been head previously and has recently been reappointed.

There are 600 pupils at Kabami School.

The school has received help from ACE, including the roofing of a classroom, textbooks, reading materials.

Also footballs, netballs, and sports clothing.

The 2008 Building Project

Old classrooms

 
These old classrooms were in very poor condition.
New roof

 

Some years ago ACE had provided new roofing but we didn't have sufficient funds to do more at the time.

Interior

 

The interiors were equally grim and uninviting.

Floor needed

 

Our builder said that he could modernise the existing building to form two acceptable classrooms for about half the cost of building new ones.

Work in progress

 

In May 2008 we comissioned him to do the work. This consisted of laying proper flooring, plastering inside and out, and providing windows and doors.

 

Work inside

 
Work proceeded very quickly and by the beginning of June the building was watertight.
Painting

 

Eden Quayle applied the blue paint to brighten the classrooms up just in time for a visit from the local bishop.

You can read more about that in Eden's 11th report by clicking here.

Completed

  The work was completed by mid-June.
Just like new  
It has cost about £4,100 and is another achievement for ACE and all our supporters.


Eden Quayle Visits Kabami School in October 2007

 
The school has a mixture of old and new buildings.

The entrance to the school library may not look very inviting .....

..... but it is much nicer inside.

Many of the books were supplied by ACE.


ACE representative, David Epidu, is seen here discussing what can be done with this dilapidated building.

It certainly isn't habitable at present but our builders could probably restore it if we had more funds.
 
Inside

Kabami boys  
Eden was given a rousing welcome by the boys ....

..... and singing and dancing by the girls.

2009 - ACE's Year of the Latrine

Unfinished latrines  

This set of latrines had been started by the parents of the pupils but they ran out of money.

ACE finished the work at a cost of £550.

New ecosan latrines  
We also built a new 5-stance ecosan latrine block at a cost of £3,000.


New Water Tank Constructed in 2011

This water storage tank at Kabami School collapsed. The problem with plastic tanks is that they become brittle after long periods in strong sunlight.

 

 
Collapsed water tank

Concrete tanks are much more expensive but are much better in the long term.

ACE has now replaced the broken tank with a concrete one at a cost of £4,000.
