Digging stumps and clearing the foundation
After acquiring site for the construction of the community mushroom house, Green Care Association recently intensified efforts to prepare site to lay the foundation and mount the structure. Serious labor has also been hired to remove four raffia palm stumps located within the boundary of the foundation, three of which had grown solidly more than two meters into the soil. The cleared land, which is large enough in both length and width to accommodate the building, has been staked by a technician. It is also accessible enough for material (sand, stones, and gravel) to be dropped on site. One of the workers, Mr. Elvis was happy to declare “I am determine to dig out the rubbish even for two weeks running, because am anxious to see this project realized.” We have molded more than half of the mud bricks for the walls, so before the end of February, given adequate funding, we will be able to begin raising the walls of the mushroom farm.
It’s thanks to GlobalGiving friends whose funds have assisted Green Care Association to begin molding and transporting blocks, clearing the building site, and paying the technicians to stake and plan the foundation process. We remain very grateful to our GlobalGiving donors who continue to support our projects and the development in Shisong.
