Mpantuase kindergarten is coming along in leaps and bounds, with the foundations now all but finished. Sponsors Ab Roy and his SpecSavers team are due to visit in October (Ebola permitting) and maybe the village is aiming to get it finished by the time he arrives.
Dawn and Paul, who sponsor two villages, have arranged training for local people in bee-keeping, and now there are four beehives at Gyetiase. One of the four has been colonised and we’re hoping that bees will find the other three soon.
Work on Mpantuase Village’s new kindergarten, financed by SpecSavers in the Midlands, is progressing at top speed to reduce the impact of high inflation on building materials. Prices are rising on a daily basis. So far, communal labour has been used to uproot tree stumps and level the ground with a bulldozer, and all building blocks have been moulded. The village is very enthusiastic, and are putting enormous effort into the work.
