With a lot of hard work the Canadian Humanitarian’s educational support centre in Gindo, Oromia, Ethiopia is well on its way! An amazing milestone has been met with the completion of the foundation!
Hauling all of the rock and breaking them up for the base of the foundation was the first step illustrated in the pictures below.
Once all of the rocks have been laid, they need to be crushed by hand.
Once they have been crushed, rebar must be laid. Seeing the completed sections beside the ones still in progress exemplifies the heavy labour necessary for laying the rebar.
Next the concrete needs to be mixed and lugged to the base of the centre. After seeing the immense amount of man power required, it is easy to believe that 40 members from the local community are employed for the completion of this building.
As construction continues, so does our desire to raise funds so this amazing center can be furnished! Vulnerable Children Society is filling the library with books, furnishing the preschool and kitchen, and filling the centre with supplies. Please help us meet our $5000 fundraising goal!
