Help Us Build A Fence!

goats.jpg Construction of our park was completed on the 12th of December 2006 and we are very grateful to all who helped and supported us. We are now wanting to build a chain link fence around the park and need financial help to make it happen. A fence will help us in many ways; -it will keep young children at a safe distance from the course so that they can’t be hit by runaway skateboards (there are many small kids that crowd around the ramps while we skate) -it will keep vandals from wrecking our course at night (a few chips have already been made in the cement from people throwing rocks at the course) -it will help us manage the course (keep the youth off of it during school hours) -and it will keep goats, chickens, and ducks off the course (seriously) The fence will be chain link and will still allow all spectators to watch skating. A proposal and price breakdown of the fence is attached to the bottom of this post. The total cost is $990.00 American dollars. If you are wanting to help please do, any amount will help us reach our goal. If 100 people give $10 we’ve got it made. Donations can be made via paypal to buraianrai@hotmail.com , or if you have any further questions on how to help us out please contact Brian Lye at buraianrai@hotmail.com. Thanks very much!

Note 1: Costs have been converted from Ugandan Shillings to American dollars at a rate of $1 to 1,800 Shillings

Note 2: The fence will be constructed by members of the organisation and thus no labour fees are listed. However, lunch will be provided to the workers and is included in the budget.

The grand total for the fence is $989.00 American Dollars. The price for each material was investigated from at least two different businesses, the lower prices are quoted in the above list.

Our organization is working to help the youth of Kitintale fight idleness and the development of negative habits. Any assistance granted towards the construction of the fence will be a large contribution to the development of the youth, our organization, and the community.
