07/15/2009 Shisásáy wins futurist campaign of UNESCO
Shisásáy e.V. was awarded as a sustainable project by the German UNESCO Commission and dm Markt in July. The campaign evaluated projects creating sustainable changes in the surrounding of their participants. Sustainability in social, ecological and economic dimensions is a key issue for the German UNESCO Commission as the UN announced the years 2005-2014 as the Decade of Education for Sustainable Development. Therefore we as an innovative project, encouraging local sustainability, want to apply to become an official project of the UN Decade. Additionally with the award we won 1.000 Euro, which we can invest in our projects. Especially for our big intention to buy the school compound for KBNPS (estimated costs 12.000 Euro) this will be a first step.

06/20/2009 Electricity for the Vocational Training Centre Meluf
After the project visit and some talks about the development with the board of the school in February 2009, we decided together to achieve an electricity supply for the training centre, where around 50 students are trained as tailors and carpenters. The electricity supply gives many opportunities to the Centre, for example they can use now sewing machines more efficiently and can work with electric drills. Additionally it reduces costs of kerosene for the bush lamps and permits the use of electric devices for administrative work, like computers or telephones.
In May all bureaucratic actions were successfully finished by the school administration and we could pay the fee of 150.000 CFA (230 €), so that right now they install the electricity. All teachers and students were happy and satisfied with the fast and uncomplicated process and are looking forward to better learning environment. We are very proud and glad that with the support of your donations the school has better equipment now and can provide more professional learning facilities.
