    December 2013 Update
    By - Geoff Burnett - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    We have become accustomed to extreme hardship in the world resulting from drought and the antithesis, flooding. In Benin, and in particular in the region of the River Oueme, the issue of the timing of the arrival of the tropical rainstorms is greatly significant. The staple crop of the area, maize, depends on critical...

    Engineer's report
    By - Dick Wheelock - Engineer and HATW volunteer
    Dogba School 26th Oct 2011 I revisited Dogba after an absence of 2.5 years. Flood water was about 75cm deep throughout the village and the crossing from Affame was about a mile long.

    School's buzzing but near to bursting
    By - Tess Molloy - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    Mr Alindra Naskar’s visit to the UK this summer has resulted in 8 new sponsors for the school. This will have a long lasting effect on the school as a whole as the money more than pays for individual children, so everyone benefits. A link with an engineering company, who paid for the building of separate toilets for...
