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

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
