A cistern is being dug to store water

Trucking in water has gotten expensive for how much they need to make the concrete. $405 usd has been spent on water and its delivery so far. The contractor suggested they dig their own storage unit or cistern  to hold 15,000 liters.  It will be 3 meters deep (9.8 feet) and 4 meters wide (about 13 feet.) Hopefully someday soon our own personal water line from the government water line will be built. That will cost $2000 to achieve, and there is some red tape involved, but it will get done. In the meantime, this sounds like a good idea to keep construction rolling along.

Preparing for the cement floors in the 4 classrooms continues.

Preparing for the cement floors for the 4 classrooms. Sand, pebbles, cement bags and water will all be mixed together. 3 wheelbarrows and buckets are used to hand deliver the cement to the classrooms. Ground compressor was rented. That is the only piece of machinery I have seen so far. Old school work…HARD WORK!
