Well folks, the walls are up and the paint is dry. Local workers have finished painting and construction on the two additional classrooms funded by Achieve in Africa! The latest pictures are posted below and show the brightly colored classrooms and a storage room built in the extra space between buildings. This brings the total to 11 brand new classrooms housing over 800 students. We will continue to construct additional classrooms to reduce the class size for the current grade levels as well as to prepare for the next grade level of students expected to arrive in January. The expansion of the school would not be possible without your continued support. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you!
We are also excited to announce a field visit planned in May for two of our board members: Shari Davis and Warren Wuerthner. Shari and Warren will be visiting Olasiti village to take a look at the classrooms, check-in with teachers, meet some students, and collaborate with the local Project Director on future plans for continued construction and support. Shari and Warren are excited for their trip and especially to share their experiences with you!
