GONGALI VILLAGE - TEACHER'S RESIDENCES
KILIMAMOJA CLASSROOMS 3,4 BUILDING
Some very heavy rains in April caused a slowdown in construction at both the Gongali Village and Kilimamoja Village sites, but we are on target for completion by May 20th or so when I am there.

The Gongali Teacher's Residences #3,4 has just completed the roof framing and now has the sheet metal roofing installed. The workers are happy to be out of the muddy stages of construction and now with sunnier drier weather, the timing is good for the plastering of the exterior walls and in a few weeks, the painting.
The Mayor came for a visit to the construction site, and to the delight of the workers, got bogged down in the slippery clay bottom of a new little lake. The farmer's tractor that came to the rescue managed to get him out, which goes to show you that it pays to have a little "pull" in the community.
One great thing about the rain, however, is the rapid growth of crops this time of year. Should be a good harvest of maize, pigeon peas, and beans.
