20/11/ – 26/11/2017
After the construction team have moved from Otjimuru to Omanguete and have spent a day off, they continue to work hard. Already a few months ago, 3 new classrooms and a school kitchen were inaugurated. However, there is a lot in this school that is old, that means it is too small and not made of particularly durable material such as cow dung.
The biggest problem right now is the fact that the classrooms have to be used by the children as bedrooms at night. A hostel is urgently needed. And this is exactly the next point that is addressed. FLY & HELP has also been able to find generous donors so that the construction team can get down to the new task.
In the first week of work, they measure first and additionally, they dig the pits for the foundation. At the same time, the construction workers start to make bricks. The procedure is known and was already described by me last year, using the example of Omuhonga.
Since Omanguete is only a stone’s throw away from the “Kaokoland e. V. – base“ in Okangavati, I refuse to camp at the construction site this time and visit my colleagues daily. In good weather (= cloudy sky) as well as in bad weather (= baking heat due to lack of clouds) they work hard and progress can be seen quickly.
