10.11.2017 - Building Permit !!!
after a long work trail Starlight finally
received the "BUILDING PERMIT" for
new Group House on Starlight Ground
Land Title is in process - soon Land Title
for an Elementary School / Orphanage
After the first building permit the Banks became more friendly to us and
offered terms and conditiones for micro loans and real mortgage loans
WE ARE WAITING FOR THE MONEY TO START BUILDING
the first GROUP HOUSE Starlight Orpanage near Kiboga
In Wakiso District there is a school director waiting for his land title coming
soon and funding of school building with 100 Mio. UGX is already in negotia-
tion with Centenary Bank - George Botyo is going to scetch up a floorplan ...
Richard created a Sales Brochure on its own to appeal more to local residents ...
The money for Building Phase 1 "Foundation Plate" has arrived in Uganda 29.11.2017 (MGKB 5.250 USD)
George Botyou and Richard Mugasho did a clever work plan : (Jimmy is passing last exams at University)
My frist calculation was 2.800 SFr - now we have send 5.250 USD for foundation plate and loan payback
Meanwhile "Therese" (Swiss women, married to USA, 2 kids, lovely family)
is bothering everybody and me with the WATER DRILL SITUATION
The Village of Naganagazi and Starlight have no water well near - PROBLEM
shall we ask Nestle for botteled Water now - Shall a new drill takes place ?
Civil Engineer Richard Mugasho managed to find a quote for a water drill
but it is for 100 Meters in Wakiso District - we need 50 Meters in Kiboga
please read the detailed quote (BOQ) for a water drill in Wakiso / Uganda
It looks like Kiboga District is willing to finish the water well drilling under certain circumstances - that is a valuable offer
Sand Delivery by MGKB building contractors Ltd.
needed for foundation plate in concrete and the
mortar for the brick laying works of Grop House
A month ago MGKB took too much money from the
sponsors bank money sending to Starlight School -
because opening a bank account was more expensive
then calculated - now MGKB pays the 1 Mio. UGS back
(1 Mio. Uganda Shillings is = 275 USD in Dez. 2017)
that leads to a very nice christmas for the kids ...
MGKB building contractors Ltd. got bank account and cheque book to pay materials and wages
next time you build in GRAVEL - min 5 mm rough !
and no plastic - give back the 840.000 UGS !
Once you get away with it - but not a second time.
Follow the drawings strictly ... vg
on Friday 22.12.2017
>>> MGKB unveiled the first casted foundation plate for GROUP HOUSE
building site : Starlight Orphans / Naganagazi, Kiboga, Uganda -
