February - March 2020: Foundation laid to build 4 classrooms. It was an emotional moment to see the foundation of the first brick school building.
I was encouraged to see the contribution of the local community who donated bricks and gravel as well as labor. The local community has shown great buy-in and participation.
The financial amount that was donated was originally for 2 classrooms.
The goal is to put several brick buildings to replace all the grass structures.
I took pictures with the primary school teachers after spending some quality time with them.
April 2020: The walls have gone up! The next phase is to put on the roof and the doors.
It is impressive that they are stretching the finances to include 2 additional classrooms.
There are over 600 primary school students and 200 secondary school students. We are anticipating another 4-5 buildings
