Updated Architectural Renderings

July 9th, 2021

The Veritas Foundation received an updated 3D rendering of new projects the Blind School hopes to accomplish with our help. We also received a bid from P.E.A.S. Enterprises (a wonderful team of workers in Sierra Leone who built the new kitchen for the Blind School last year!) for roughly $31,000. Funding for this project will accomplish the following:

  • Introduce drainage channels to direct heavy rainwater away from buildings and play areas
  • Pave the grounds and provide “carpet grass” (artificial turf) so the children can play soccer
  • Build a covered walkway and sidewalks so the children can walk around the grounds without getting wet during the rainy season
  • Purchase a generator and build a generator storage room so the staff (some of whom are not blind) can see in the evenings
  • Build a storage room with a freezer so the school can preserve perishable food items
  • Construct a laundry room with sinks so the children can wash their hands and brush their teeth
  • Develop a covered area so the children can hang their clothes out to dry
  • Provide resources to dig the well deeper and finish constructing the water tower (including installing a second one) so the children can have running water


This updated plan will also accomplish:

  • Grading the compound 
  • Tiling the floor in the main classroom
  • Purchasing a new freezer
  • Installing new lights and electrical wiring


Please let us know if you would like to help us support the Blind School with their plans!
