Mirim school has two three-storey school buildings with the total ﬂoor space of 3200 m2, and boarding houses with the total ﬂoor space of 2800 m2. There are 550 orphaned school children, (300 boys and 250 girls) living in the dormitories of the school. 250 Primary school students (7-10 years), 150 Junior middle school (11-13 years) and 150 Senior middle school (14-16 years). There are 180 staff looking after them. Currently, water for cooking, cleaning and bathing is heated using coal, which is not only expensive but also pollutes the environment.
How can this be changed?
We will purchase and install 2 lanes of 12 solar energy water heaters and supporting equipment and we will provide a year’s supply of toilet soap. After installation, 550 orphans ranging from age 7 to 16 as well as 180 members of staff will be able to bathe at least every other day in hot water and will have a greater knowledge and awareness of the importance of personal hygiene.
How can we contribute?
Rotary and Rotaract clubs jointly organized a fundraiser consisting in the screening of “Comrad Kim goes flying”, a Belgium, UKand North Korea co-production, directed by Kim Gwang Hun, Nicholas Bonner and Anja Daelemans. The screening will be held at NYU School Theatre. The teaser for the film is below (also on youku).
