September 2022

"Good afternoon Dagmar! I hope all is well over there, we are also doing very well here.
I am very sorry I couldn't write to you after vacation to update you of the vacation and reopening and also the excursion.
We vacated on 18th of August, and we will reopening on 13th of September 2022.
We also had a meeting with the PTA (=Elternabend), and we spoke about the excursion and they asked us to rather go to Kitanpo, then from Kitanpo we will go to Damago and spend the night there.
The next morning we will go to the Mole national park, and then come back to Tamale. At Tamale we will visit the sports stadium, the airport and come back to Salaga.
We wanted to go on the 12th of last month, but most people didn't pay us at then, only 30 students pay, but the bus is supposed to take 60 to 65 students. So we decided postpone it to next term.
Those are some pictures and videos of the students in the camping. The rooms are not in enough for them, but they are managing them. They are 16 girls using the volunteers huts."

Die Schüler der 9. Klasse machen dieses Jahr die Abschlussprüfung. Sie campieren in den Volotärshütten (16 Mädchen) und in Klassenzimmern.
Bis Oktober studieren sie jeden Tag dort.

"This was the time they were removing the old floor, because it was very bad.

"We also had some money from the School and added it to the fees you brought to add another class room for the primary side."

"How is everyone over there. Dagmar, I will send you some pictures of the year 9 students preparing for their final exame in October 17/2022. They have written about 3 exams, this one is the fourth one they're writing, they'll still write 2 more before they will go in for the final one in October 17. So for that matter, we are camping with them in the School to get them more prepared."

"Good afternoon Dagmar, some pictures of the hat.
We want to reroof it. The old roof has been gone off and it can't be used again, so we bought new ones for it.
This should have been done for long, but we were not getting the teach to buy.
It was yesterday we had some in one village.
Yesterday I went with some students but we could not pick all so today two of the boys come and we for the rest.
Tomorrow they will come and roof it.
Greetings, Kofi."

"Good morning Dagmar, I hope you are doing well.
Is just to inform you that we had the plants last week and we planted them this morning.
We could not plant them last week because the place was hard.
We had rain during the weekend. Greetings from the school to everyone over there."

"Good morning Dagmar, how's everyone?
Dagmar, I just want you to know that the children are back to school last two weeks. They went for vacation for two weeks and now they're back, this is the primary kids.
As for the jhs ('Junior High School', Klasse 7-9), they will go on vacation on 7 of next month and also came back within two weeks.
We had few runs and so we have started some thing in the garden. We have prated some yam and maize but the maize did not do, because, the rain has stopped.
So we wait some time for the rain so that we do the maize and also the vegetables.
Greetings to everyone.
...and also COME back...
...we have planted..."

"Here are some files. The pictures above is the current state of the school...just this morning around 11:40 AM a strong wind (whirlwind) caused this disaster."

"How many buildings got unroofed?"

"The nursery block (the one with the well)."

"All 3 buildings of the nursery block?"

"Yes, Dagmar."

"That's horrible. And still no rain?"

"Yeah, no rain."

"At this moment we haven't got any money. But the repair of the roofs need to be done in a short time, better before a strong rain will destroy walls."

"Exactly, Dagmar."

"I will inform our sponsors tomorrow."

Katastrophen Alarm (Nachricht von Dagmar):

Hallo an alle,

der Klimawandel setzt deutliche Zeichen in Nordghana.

In Salaga gleich 2 Katastrophen auf einmal.
Seit Monaten gibt es keinen Regen. Inzwischen können die Haushalte sich kanisterweise Wasser von einem Wassertank-Lastwagen kaufen. Das ist ein riesiges Problem. Die Ernte ist inzwischen vertrocknet. Vielleicht nicht die Yamswurzeln, aber das ganze Gemüse.

Und dann gestern früh noch ein Wirbelsturm. Er hat von 3 Gebäuden die Dächer abgehoben. Der Schaden ist immens. Es betrifft die U3 Klasse, und den Kindergarten 1 und 2.

Es ist zwar gut, dass nun wirklich der Regen innerhalb der nächsten Tage zu erwarten ist, aber...der Regen wird die Mauern zerstören, wenn nicht sozusagen SOFORT neue Dächer auf die Gebäude gesetzt werden.

Katastrophen Alarm:
Bitte spendet.
Diese Extraspende wird direkt geschickt, damit die Arbeiten sofort beginnen können. Bitte schreibt das Stichwort 'Katastrophenhilfe' auf eure Überweisung.

Oben könnt ihr den Telegram-Wortwechsel zwischen Elijah und mir lesen. Elijah hat die pädagogische Leitung der Schule (Kofi die Verwaltung, Peter Tsinagyei -Vater von Kofi - hat die Schule gegründet).

DANKE für alle Spender!

Grüße Dagmar

"Hello Dagmar, I write to inform you that our students have had their BECE results and they all passed very well...in addition, they have all been placed in very good secondary schools. We are really happy about this development and deem it necessary to put you in the know. Greetings!"

"Great. We are very proud of all the students and all the teachers who helped our students to this fantastic result. And of course our heartly thanks go to Kofi, who was constantly busy for everybody to support the classes run in this difficult time. Our respect to all of you. Greetings Dagmar."

"We are greatful for the complements...we shall continue to work harder to achieve greater heights."

Februar 2021

Seit zwei Monaten sind die Wassertanks leer, die örtliche Wasserleitung kaputt.
Täglich kauft Kofi Wasser in Kanistern aus der Stadt. Es wird zum Gießen, Waschen, Kochen etc. verwendet.

Auf den Fotos sind die angelegten Beete mit Karotten, Tomaten und anderem Gemüse zu sehen.
Die Sonne ist sehr stechend. Man gibt sich viel Mühe mit dem Pflanzen.
Demnächst wird (hoffentlich) wieder das Wasser aus den Wasserleitungen kommen. Die Leitungen sind aktuell defekt.
Hoffentlich regnet es auch bald. Die Regenzeit dauert von April bis Juni sowie September / Oktober. Die letzte Regenzeit hörte zusätzlich früher als bisher auf (Klimawandel?!).
Natürlich ist viel Geld für Wasser verwendet worden. Der Zaun, der um das Feld gezogen wurde, ist deshalb noch nicht fertig. Es fehlen Zement-Verstärkungen zwischen einzelnen Abschnitten.

Januar 2021

Mit Spendengeldern wurde eine Bewässerungsanlage gekauft, die unter der Oberfläche verlegt wurde.
Zudem wurde um die Schulfarm ein Zaun gezogen.
Kofi hat uns mit Bildern und Videos versorgt, auf denen die neue Anlage bzw. der Zaun zu sehen ist.
