Classroom build – update

March 26, 2021|

Foundations dug, materials delivered and work on the build is flying along. Update from Elijah Amazing work going on here… Many of the people on the village are very happy as we are buying materials from them. Others are directly employed as builders and porters at the building site. I have so far bought 8,000 bricks, 60 bags of cement, 10 trips and sand (both lake and swamp sand) and more bricks are being brought at the site I am now buying enough materials to be around at the building site as this is a rainy season and it may be difficult to bring materials later on when it rains
