Post 6: Working on the land

-- We, Forrest, Fode and I, are so excited to share this next update with you. Preliminary construction for Bayiby Cultural Arts Academy has officially started! Our local contractor has been doing an amazing job. He has not only been working hard preparing the land for our peaceful compound wall, but he has also helped us by overseeing all the other work that is being done on the land. What's more, he has been a major advocate for us in the community, as we strive to maintain positive working relations our neighbors while also staying within our budget. We are all one in our efforts toward the vision we are bringing to fruition.

-- Here are the first transformation pictures for the land. The brush has already been cleared, the well is dug, and the perimeter has been prepared for foundation. Forrest will be returning to Soixante Six this week to use our remaining money to purchase construction materials, which will stay with our school, such as shovels, wheelbarrows, water jugs, and rope. He will also be purchasing rock for our perimeter foundation. Our next step will be to begin purchasing bricks!

-- Grant us the opportunity to continue our work by showing your support! If you can't afford to donate, help us spread the word. No donation or effort is too small. We thank all of you who have participated in supporting us and hope more will join the cause!!
