This was the school in Pousga.
Well, it was not really a school, it was a shed that belonged to the chief of the village. True, this structure at least keept the sun off the children's heads but, it did not protect them from wind and rain in the rainy season, sooo...no school on those days!
We often see photos like this coming out of Africa. We come to expect that it's just the way they live, but do we stop to ask if we would accept this environment for our children?
Well!, you did not accept these standards for these children! HBFC on behalf of all of its donors, funded the construction of a three classroom school.
The children are walking me to their old school
on my last visit.

Playing with the ball that the grade 5 class at Cloverdale Catholic School gave the children.
