Stella’s Blog – 1st December 2015

Great news! All permissions have been granted by the village Chief and other powers that be and building work is underway. First of all we had to widen the road leading to the school as it was only suitable for an ox cart at best and more usually bicycles. In fact last time I was there, due to it being rainy season, I had to roll my trousers up and wade through flood water to get there!

As you will see from the pics the road has now been built up and the foundations for the building are well underway. The work you can see here will all be part of the base as we need to raise the building to avoid the flood water in the rainy season, this will be filled with rubble and topped with sand before the next level gets underway.

The plan is to have the building completed by the end of January and then install a power supply. I am currently getting estimates and comparing set up and running costs for both power on the grid and solar power. The power on the grid is unreliable and expensive so it would be great to have an alternative or at least a back up… of course this depends on funds as always!
