Building a School in MalekIn the Summmer of 2009, Deng Jongkuch went to Sudan on behalf of Impact a Village to direct the building of a primary school in Malek, Southern Sudan. The elders of Malek agreed to donate and clear the land for the school in addition to having villagers help with the building. Under the direction of a contractor hired by Impact a Village, the villagers cleared the land, dug the foundation, made bricks from cement and sand, and built the walls of the school. All the materials for the school including cement, lumber, rebar, and roofing material were purchased by Impact a Village and transported by hired truck from Uganda to Malek, Southern Sudan. The 5-room school house was completed in September 2009 and will hold about 300 students. The cost for the school was about $25,000 which was raised by generous donations to Impact a Village. The new school provides a dry shelter for children to learn to read.
