The Prince and Princess Academy Project Team have come out with a creative way to raise funding for the project. Our team member Princess Salma and a friend of the project Zenab, are talented in designing customized tops using African fabrics. The Team has nine (9) kinds of beautiful fabrics (cotton material) which are showcase in the photos below. We are selling each top (shirt) for $35, €30 or £26 (this includes the shipping cost) and 70% of the profit will go to support the school building project. The tops (shirts) can be made for both men and women including children. We will also include some postcards from Ghana.
One of our fellow team member from Germany, Tanja, who was excited to purchase one for herself to celebrate her birthday – this is the one she is wearing in the photos! Over the years, Prince Sisu and his Co-founder Gadafi have designed these beautiful tops (shirts) for friends across the world. We hope you will check out our photos and message us about purchasing one of these tops! You are not only buying a beautiful shirt from Ghana but you are also contributing to the building of a school which will provide a brighter future for many children. As you might guess, supplies are limited, so contact us soon to make a request! You can also contact the Co-founder Prince Sisu on facebook to make an order. Click here for more photos of the designed tops.
Your friends, The Prince and Princess Academy Project Team.
On June 5th we were able to begin the process of wiring the classrooms! With your donations, we have purchased the electrical materials including wires, pipes, socket boxes other accessories for the electrical work. At this point, we are able to pay half of the payment for the labor. The electricians will not route the wires through the piping until we are ready to install the plywood ceiling. Your continued support will help us complete this portion of the project! We will be sharing some photos of the piping installation along with this update.
Hello everyone! In the past few weeks, construction has been moving along quickly! We have been able to fill all of the classrooms with gravel sand, and we are finishing watering and compacting it so that we can top off the sand before pouring the concrete for the floors. The ceiling joists are complete, and we will post a video soon to show you the work being done on the last two classrooms. As mentioned in our last update, we have collected estimates for the electrical materials, including labor costs for the electrical work. We also have estimates for constructing the ceiling with plywood and ceiling buttons; the plywood has already been purchased. These estimates are listed below.
The Prince & Princess Academy Project Team have filled 3 classrooms with gravel sand preparing the ground for floor works and the carpenters have worked on the ceiling joints. A video update will be posted soon.
We have several updates for you, as much has happened since the last time we posted! Because of your donations and support, the roofing for the school is complete! The carpenters are working on ceiling joints now, and we have purchased some gravel sand to fill the classrooms. So far we have enough to fill 3 of the rooms, but we still need to buy more for the other two classrooms, as well as labor to perform the work.
We will soon take estimates for the remainder of the cost, plus the amount needed for electrical work, including the wires that pass through the ceilings and walls to provide lights, outlets and fans in the classrooms. As always, thank you for helping us make this project possible! Your continued support makes a huge difference and we look forward to seeing these next tasks underway.
The Prince & Princess Academy Project Team wishes to thank Students of Ruusuvuoren Koulu ( Rose Mountain School) from Finland for donating $865 to support the roofing of the Prince & Princess Academy building. The Team appreciate your immense contribution. It is amazing when those who love to learn share their passion with other hopeful students!
The Prince & Princess Academy Project Team will erect the Flag of Finland in the school to honour the students of Ruusuvuoren Koulu when it is completed.
