During the months of October and November, NMSI enrolled Soland into one of our ‘Giving Back’ partners, A Child Unheard, where they are now completing the urgent repair and renovation works to ACU’s school roof.
This project, partially financed by the funds raised by William Hsu (son of NMSI Deputy Chairman Fred Hsu) and friend Charlie Stevens from their epic 10,500 km cycle ride along the silk road for ACU, is a great milestone for Soland, as they gain their first, of what is hoped will be many, new contracts outside the ‘Built To Care Ghana’ district hospital programme.
This is phase 1 of the renovation programme at the school and sees the renovation of the kitchen, classroom and office block. This phase of works is well underway and is due to be completed by mid-November.
Richard Goodall, Director of Strategy – A Child Unheard Foundation, said “due to the condition of the roof at our school, we found ourselves in real need of a professional and compassionate construction partner. Thankfully we found NMSI and Soland listened to our needs and they have exceeded our expectations. All of us at the A Child Unheard Foundation, the school and the children want to thank NMSI and their team for their fantastic help”.
Furthermore, Soland have employed labourers from the local Ayenyah community, in turn passing on and transferring long term skills to all those involved in the project.
