Petit à petit

Slow but steady progress is being made in repairing the school in Gogo, Ivory Coast. All the desks that were needed, over forty in all, have been obtained for the school children and work has started on putting in windows and doors to secure the classrooms.

All being well, in a week or so, a carpenter will be going to the village to replace some of the rusted tin and rotting wood on the school roof. After that we would like to get the walls skimmed and new cement floors poured throughout the building.

Last month the education authorities in Ivory Coast sent another two qualified teachers to the village to help the one teacher who was already there. The villagers were thrilled about that.

Thank you so much for your contributions that have made all the repairs to the school possible.
