The majority of the villagers have now built their temporary house. Our aim is now to support the construction of a temporary school for the 360 kids of this area. We brought the shelters to built 12 classrooms (452 steel sheets) 5 toilets, the necessary tools, 10 dashboards for each classroom, a notebook and pen/pencil for each kid. Everybody was taking part in the transport of the material from the road till up to the village, from the young kids to the old people. An amazing mixture of generations.
The headmaster is now coordinating with the community of the villagers to start as soon as possible the construction of the temporary school.
We are looking forward to going back in about one week to see the advance of the work with the food to prepare the lunches at school for 1 month for the 360 kids and 12 teachers, together with some playing games material.
A special thank to all of you, and in particular to our friends Jessica Tradati and Séverine Pont Combe (Association les Enfants du Sourire) for their specific support in this project.
