The construction is underway for the security wall around the campus of WISDOM Community School. Despite the rainy season, work is progressing.
In the pictures on the right, we see the footings have been poured for the security wall.
The other exciting elements in the pictures are electric power poles!
Yes, the electricity is very close. Zambia recently experienced torrential rains and heavy winds. Power was out for many in the Ndola area. After the power company restores the power to those who lost it, they have assured us that they will run the power to the school.
The security wall around the property should be finished in March or April, weather permitting. After the completion of the wall and the electricity, we can install a power pump on the well and a water storage tank. Then they will be able to have faucets to supply the water, rather than a hand pump.
Our next phase will be building a kitchen with a water supply and and electric stove. This facility will enable us to begin a lunch program for the children of WISDOM!
