Diving in Zanzibar – Support local fishermen

Update posted by Julia Maier On Mar 03, 2018

We drew lots to find a winner and reward all our backers as promised. Therefore we entered all our backer names on castlots.org and pressed the green button to generate the random winner. Congratulations to Steve Rusznyak, you are the lucky one to get a free PADI course or 10-tank-dive with FUN DIVERS ZANZIBAR.

We have good news and this picture from FUN DIVERS ZANZIBAR for you. They are very happy because they meanwhile managed to move into their new dive base building on the beach. With your donations and some money they earned it was possible for them to finish the front rooms for usage. But the construction continues and all missing parts will be finished step by step. After 7 month this campaign reached 15% funding and no further donations arrive, so we decided to close it down now. FUN DIVERS ZANZIBAR say thank you so much for everyone who supported them so far and are looking forward to meet some of you in Zanzibar someday.

We want to show you how Cholo is spending your donations for this project. Please understand in East Africa there are no prizes for everything on the wall and things work differently than we are used to.

This cost estimation explains how Cholo will spend 11,000 Euro for the building, 8,000 Euro for the van and the rest for fundraising fees. The land belongs to Cholo´s family. All materials are ordered from local companies in Zanzibar and only local craftsmen or workers are hired. 11,000 Euro for the building will be just enough to finish the most important parts to move in as soon as possible:

The finished parts

I already transferred 2,000 Euro of your donations to Zanzibar. This helped Cholo to finish two huge main doors, two small doors, one window for the toilet room and the front wall plaster. Thank you for your excellent support!

The missing parts

Cholo needs your further donations to finish three doors, one window, walls, floors, ceiling board, toilet, water, electricity, sun shelter, fence and to buy the furniture and the van.

I will keep transferring your incoming donations step by step. This will help Cholo to finish the urgently needed beachfront dive base and to buy the furniture and the van as soon as possible. Every donation matters and your help will be making Cholo´s dream of a locally run quality dive center in Zanzibar come true.

The incoming donations enabled Cholo to order two huge exterior doors and frames at a local carpentry. These craftsmen make massive one-off productions in size 9 x 8 feet from pieces of Tanzanian hardwood. Thank you for your excellent support!
