No-ofisi school hall roofed!

There was much excitement recently at the completion of the roof of the No-ofisi school hall. No small task given the size of the hall and the fact that everything had to be done by hand, including the cutting and transporting of poles!!

The building of the hall forms part of our plans to rehabilitate the local government primary school.

A team from Cintsa Thatching were brought in to oversee the task. Together with local labourers, they did a remarkable job.
