We need Education to fight poverty in South Sudan

Thanks for your support to help children to fight through Education.
Hope Ofiriha has partnered with Journey International, Inc. to redesign the current structure of the school building. The present design is too expensive to build. However, one under design will require a small budget to erect the buildings. It takes six months to release a new layout. JMI will be coming in June to help build Mairo primary school.

Within now and June the local volunteers will make hardcore stones, quarry stones, collecting sand, and cutting trees to make timbers for roofing.

The project has purchased 40 bags of cement to produce more interlocking soil blocks to add to the one already produced.

Hope Ofiriha sends a new field update after a quarter so that you get to know the progress we are making with building work. Also, how your contribution is enabling children to attend classes in two classrooms already built.
