“He who opens a school door, closes a prison.” Victor Hugo
In November 2021, the ground was broken for the foundations of preschool which will serve the needs of neighbourhood children close to the training base.
Here, Jos Storm, a faithful Dutch volunteer tells us what happened:
”This week we started with digging for the foundation of the preschool building. We asked the price for hiring an excavator, but it is very expensive daily rate, which tempts them to work slowler to earn more money. We decided to dig by hand. A lot of people in the neighbourhood are unemployed and families are suffering from lack of food. It’s tough work to dig for a building of 1000 sq metres at temperatures up to 38 degrees. But they are working so hard and I’m happy that about 20 families can eat the next weeks.”
