School raising funds by selling scrapers

National

DON Bosco Technical School in Gabutu launched its fundraising “Project scraper” at the Salesian Mission Day celebrations on June 4. The fundraising drive was set up to help with the construction of a new building and purchase of supply machines and medical equipment for the Don Bosco Salesian Centre run by the Caritas Sisters in South Sudan, Africa. Students, under the guidance of their instructors, made the scrapers to be sold at K50 each with a target of K10,000.
In his message at the project launch at school, Rector Fr Pedro Sachitula said the educative pastoral community, including the Association of Salesian Cooperators, were together in the project. “We live with each other, as a community, as a body, as a family and we strengthen ourselves in the community,” he said. “Let us all learn to live with others. “The theme ‘One Father, one family’ means we have one Father, and if we have one Father. we are called to live as one family.” The project was part of the school’s response to what the 2021 Salesian Mission Day is proposing – Mission solidarity under the slogan “One Father, one family”. Other fundraising activities included a raffle draw, a bingo and fundraisings will run from this month to October.
