Presently, The Shalom Children’s Centre is still a Building Site. Permission and approvals of the project have been obtained from the Goromonzi Rural District Council and we have begun the construction phase of the project. In this phase, there are sub phases which can be done at the same time. Phases 1, 3, and 5 can be done together as, while the building is being constructed, boreholes can be sunk to provide water and children’s play grounds can be prepared. Those companies identified to make and supply internal furnishings can be identified and asked to start making the furniture so that it can be ready as soon as construction work is completed. Now that the planning permission has been granted, we are beginning the construction phase of the project.

We have set aside some money for use on the project but because of the size of the project, we realise that the money available would not be sufficient to see us complete the project in time to meet our target completion of this Centre in the last quarter of, 2020, funds permitting. We are now fund raising for this Construction phase of the project at the same time doing what we can with the funds available.
We have divided this project into five phases namely:
We are therefore appealing for support to enable us to proceed and complete this project in time for the targeted completion in the last quarter of 2020. At this moment in time we are focused on the Construction Phase.
A lot of work has already been done on the project. Building Plans for the first phase have already been done and approved by The Goromonzi Rural District Council. The local Community has been involved right from the start of the project and are very supportive and pleased about the development. The Body of Governors has been constituted comprising of people with specialisations which will contribute meaningfully and positively to issues concerning children. The constitution for the centre has been drawn up and the Centre’s policies and procedures, have also been written. Some of the staff have already been identified.
