Current state of construction of the LLK Education Center:

Thanks to the many generous donations and successful activities, the construction of the elementary school has made enormous progress. The elementary school construction was completed in May 2018. Also the pavement of the school courtyard is done and the wall around the site is drawn. Also the kitchen with the dining hall, the kindergarten and the administration building (including a library, rooms for medical care and offices) were completed until spring 2020.
In November 2020 we began the construction of the last planned building – the vocational college. The completion of the building and the equipment of the workshops now depends on further donations. Your continued support will make a difference.

Master plan of the Educational Center, as in December 2020 (click on the plan for a larger image)

The following pictures document the progress of the construction activities at our school center: In 2014, the parents of the project children cleared the area acquired by LLK (about 100 m x 100 m in size). A few weeks later, the construction of the first three classrooms began. In each of the following 3 years another classroom could be added. At the end of 2017, the construction of classroom no. 7 and the first part of the office / teacher’s room started. In March 2018, the rooms were completed and the construction of the last classroom and the second part of the office / teachers’ room started. In May 2018, the construction of the primary school was completed with 8 classrooms, office and staff rooms. In 2017, the new kitchen building was completed. Parallel to the school construction, the cowshed for the three sponsored cows was finished and a stone wall was built around two sides of the property. In June 2018, the groundbreaking ceremony took place for the construction of the dining hall (which should also serve as a multi-purpose hall) and its connection to the kitchen. The construction has been finished in October 2019, equipped with new tables and benches designed for us by Sebastian Herkner. The wall now also encloses the entire area. Started in November 2019, construction of the kindergarten was completed in January 2020. The administration building with library and medical rooms also started in November 2019 and was completed in April 2020. Because of the Covid19 pandemic the official inauguration of the last two buildings will be rescheduled for 2021. From November 2020 the construction of the last building, the vocational school, has started.
However, the funds accumulated towards this construction have been used up in December 2020 and the completion is dependent on further new donations.
