Let's Build!

Thank you everyone for donating to the school construction project. I have received the funding and construction has already begun. We have mixed cement, sand, and water and made 2,200 cement blocks for our two brand new classrooms. The mason arrived today to lay out the site so we can begin digging the foundation. A dump truck of gravel roared through our small village a week ago, one of the two cars that were spotted in town this month, and on its way back got stuck 3 times. The village pulled together dug it out and got it back to the asphalt road after a couple of hours of mayhem. I am currently working on getting a camera so that I can begin posting pictures of the work and I promise to have some soon. I hope you are all well and want to let you know that your money is being put to good and efficient use over here in Niger. Take Care
