Friends & Family
Today we finished our last project here in Morocco. The local elementary school that children from our village attend was in need of some improvement.
The school is adjacent to a well where people draw water for drinking and for their animals. Goats, sheep and cows would wander between school buildings leaving behind their waste.
With a grant from USAID (American foreign aid) we were able to construct a wall around the school buildings. The children have already started to prepare a garden in the enclosed area and they are planning to plant some trees next.
With another grant we were able to construct bathrooms for the girls and boys. It is hard to believe a school without bathrooms, but now that is in the past.
The community, teachers and students are very happy and thankful for the help.
We will be returning to the Massachusetts in about three weeks on May 1st.
