For our second construction project, we chose to conduct substantial renovations to a two-story school about a 90-minute walk from Ramche (the site of our first school). At the Mahakali Lower Secondary School, we replaced a leaky roof and broken plaster, fixed the toilets, and installed new furniture. The most encouraging part of the project was the contributions by the local community. Not only did workers donate labor worth one-third of the total project cost, but the rusty zinc sheets that comprised the previous roof were sold to raise money as well.
