Next upgrade for Cinder block plant

as you know our goal is to help develop a system that can help the schools to become self sustaining from the profits made from the cinder block plant.. one of the problems that we have run into is the breakdown of equipment... here you can see that the engine for our generator has to be re built... it is a cost of $6000. U.S. ... when these things occur it brings a hault to the production of our block ... we then loose contacts because of down time... our hope is to raise enough funds to purchase and addition generator and a cinder block press... we presently have two rock crushers so we are in good shape there... cost of two pieces of equipment needed here will be about $35,000.  This will give us back up for each piece of equipment so when one goes down they are able to switch over to the other back up piece so the plant will not have to have shut down time... this gives us an opportunity to service the equipment effectively also... pictures show the diesel engine apart waiting to be rebuilt
   ......thank you for making a difference...
