The alkalo worked with Alieu to write a letter to the Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education.
Alieu has since met with the Regional Director and the Ministry's Cluster Monitor. The village meets the government's guideline of providing a school for every child within 3 km of their home. But while they wait for formal approval, one factor looms: the seasonal rainy season is July to September, and making mud bricks is time consuming but impossible to do in the rain! So they'd like to get started as soon as they know that the cement and roofing materials to protect the walls will be available when those rains come.
We hope you will join us and help this community provide the school that their children deserve.
