Last week saw the commissioning of a new kindergarten for Kruwi village. It’s very important for villages to have kindergartens, so parents can leave their toddlers in safety while they go to work on their farms.
Kruwi spent a day rejoicing when their kindergarten was finally up and running. The opening ceremony was presided over by the local authority Chief Executive.
This picture shows the layout of the latrines finished earlier this year at the three villages of Patese, Sesease and Kokoben, commonly known as PSK.
After they’d finished the work, PSK appealed direct to the donors for a palm-oil presser, to enable them to sell palm oil at the local markets. The donors agreed, and work is to begin shortly.
