Two past missionaries formed a team of 30 from the Redlands SDA Church to go on a mission trip to Majuro planned for June 2020. Due to the pandemic, they postponed the mission trip until further notice, but continue to be passionately working on this project. According to their website, "While no official date has been set, we tentatively plan to complete our project next summer (2021)." As we enter 2021, the plans are moving forward to upgrade the classrooms in June and July.
The school needs to provide air conditioning, new paint, organizational storage, and textbooks to the school. They have been collaborating with school leadership for a while now and have revisited the island to ensure everything is ordered properly and ready to be shipped from the states.
They have determined the need to be the following:
17 AC units ($1,400 each)
16 windows ($170 each)
Approximate total: $27,000
Here's what they have to say about this project on the website they made for it: www.missiontomajuro.org/initiatives/classroom-atmosphere
"The classroom is where the learning happens.
If classrooms are not conducive for learning, something needs to be done. The weather in Majuro causes classrooms to be almost 95 degrees Fahrenheit! That is not an effective learning environment.
We have partnered with the local administration and some experts from Southern California to install air conditioning in every classroom. This will allow teachers and students to focus on teaching and learning rather than the sweat dripping from their brows. The climate control will also provide a space with less humidity, allowing supplies greater longevity. Finally, it will help with noise control since teachers will be able to close their windows and door. This way, other students or distractions outside will be lessened.
Installing air conditioning also means installing windows in several of the classrooms to hold in the cool air.
Installing AC Units and windows will not only provide a comfortable learning environment, but it will legitimize the school as a professional institution. This will help draw students to the school and advance its Christian mission.
We will also be painting classrooms to give students a professional space they can appreciate and care for.
In addition, we will be building cubbies and bookshelves to give students and teachers the necessary space for storage and organization.
All of these things are important to providing both teachers and students with an effective learning space. "
Any amount of money you can provide for the material cost will be appreciated.
