Construction begins in Tua!

The construction at Tua Primary in Northern Ghana has started! Teams are have started molding the blocks that will be used as the walls for this new building that will be enjoyed by students and faculty alike. Since this is the most time consuming part of the construction phase, we predict the new school will be up in no time. We are thrilled to share this progress report and can’t wait to let you know when the building is finished!
