It all began with this old fence, dismantled and replaced by the new.
The old bricks are cleaned and re-used for the wall construction.
Digging the foundation. Labour intense, all done by hand.
The walls are about 1 foot thick. The entire building of concrete and blocks
must conform to Europeon Union Standards. It is a very strong building.
The second level under construction. This will house an apartment for the
Learning for Life Center manager.
Programs operating from the Learning for Life Centre will ...
- Offer practical support (e.g. food, clothing)
- Provide medical supplies
- Address critical needs (e.g. shelter)
- Teach ‘skills for a better way’ (e.g. life skills, ESL, counseling, dicipleship)
- Increase economic self sufficiency (e.g. micro business training)
As of December 2009 the upper level is constructed c/w tile roof.
