Once we have found the area we will settle in, we will look for a piece of property to build on. The first phase of the 'compound' will include Don's workshop where the Borehole digging machine will be built. Young men are already lining up to work with Don to bring his ideas to life and to learn the skills it takes to build and maintain the equipment.
In addition to Don's workshop, there will be the main building which includes several apartments, the main dining room, main kitchen and a chapel. The dining room will have 6 tables and when not being used for meals will double as office space for men and women to start their own online business, allowing them to create an income to support their families.
Cars need a lot of maintenance in Uganda and Kenya because of the poor roads. our driver will need to have some experience with simple repairs and a garage to do the repairs in and store his tools. Because of the road conditions, our first vehicle needs to be a 4 wheel drive with big tires. A used one will cost about $6,000 and we plan on purchasing it in late April or early May of this year. We hope to include a bus in the future so that our teams can travel easily to the surrounding villages.
currently we have $3,500 of the needed $6,000 for the car.
Our 2 bedroom apartment will have a front porch and window looking at prayer mountain. There will be another apartment for visiting missionaries, and one for the couple who will cook and maintain the compound. There will be a bunk room for the single men who work with Don. Individual homes will be built for the families of team members.
