Construction of Boys’ Hostel 2016-2017

St. Konrad Integrated Vocational School is growing in terms of enrollment especially for those learners who stay in the School. The School has two hostels, one for girls and another for boys. The increase in the numbers of learners who stay in the School now requires that more hostels be built to answer this need. We are thankful to the Foerderverein – St. Konrad School- Bebaase Uganda e.V in Muenchen for sponsoring the construction of a new hostel for the boys. Work started in September and is still in progress.

Workshop Construction on Progress

Dear Readers, I am happy to share with you about our progress concerned the Workshops. Given limited funds, we decided to start with three workshops doing only the foundation, the basement floor, the pillars and the slab. At the End of December, this work was completed. We are very indebted to the Barmherzigen Schwestern, Vienna and the St. Familia Bruchkoebel for most of the funding for this section. We pray the Almighty God to send us more giving hands, so that we can do the rest of the two remaining rooms from the foundation level.
Skills are Food.
