Extra classrooms make all the difference

Vishma Chetty

Aspen Holdings teamed up with United States-driven child welfare organization Key of Hope, for the thirdconsecutive year.

Numerous activities took place in support of this facility that provides refuge to some 2000 children under the age of 18 years. This year, the primary project included cleaning a container that will serve as classrooms for children who require extra tuition after school.

A painting contractor’s services was required to assist with the preparation of the container. Window frames were replaced and sealed, a skylight was put in for brighter lighting inside the container and rust was taken care of. With the assistance of an electrician, lights were installed and the existing air conditioners were serviced.

The area around the container was also landscaped, hedges and shrubs were planted, tables and benches were provided and the flower pots brightened up with a fresh coat of paint.

The staff and children from Key of Hope were extremely grateful for Aspen’s help as we again touched many hearts through the campaign.
