Hi Friends of Primary Schools For Africa

The below graphic and photos show where we are with fundraising and construction as of 16 July 2013. 

Success! We have reached our goal of $18,600 for this project because of generous donations from caring supporters. The construction as a result is "FULL STEAM AHEAD" and we expect to now complete this first building by 15 August 2013.

Thank you to all those who have donated!

Concrete brick walls are mortared in, leaving spaces for concrete columns to be added later, using the concrete bricks to help with formwork.

Wood trusses built on the ground are placed on the top of the walls and evenly spaced. 2 x 4 wood purlins and fascia boards are placed horizontally to support the metal roofing.


The next stage will be the installation of wood door frames and metal windows, followed by plastering of the exterior and interior walls.

Donations are still needed for the ongoing construction at all our sites; Gongali, Kilimamoja and Ayalabe.
