Ground was broken on the the school construction!

Groundbreaking ceremony

Ground was broken on the school construction earlier in 2010 and workers are on pace to complete the project by March 2011, with some classes beginning in January in the completed portions of the classroom block.

Four of the new teachers have been recruited and employed, with at least two more needed in the near term. A new matron, who will live with the girls in the dorm, is also being sought.

Building the foundation

The work on the ground is going well and the girls are very excited about the school and the support from the U.S. They are looking forward to seeing a group of supporters who plan to visit the new school in 2011.

The girls are doing well and there are now over 62 girls currently at the rescue center – the numbers went up as the girls are coming from the neighboring region as they hear about the rescue center and school.

Thank you Digvijay, Jonas, Patrick, Lisa, Richard, Joanna, Rachel, Caren and Susan for your support of this project!
