|Hard Work Not Done by Me|
Day one of our solar school project is successfully under way, but no credit goes to the volunteers.
Day one saw the initial technical tasks undertaken by the Ugandan builders that we contracted. They spent several hours getting the dimensions of the school exactly square using nails, string, and some branches of nearby trees.
The next few hours were spent digging deep trenches. Large rocks will be placed in the trenches, followed by much smaller rocks and then the bricks themselves to form the walls. The dirt from the trenches will be packed back into the trenches to ensure a strong wall.
Today should see a lot more “hard yacka” (as we say in New Zealand) by the volunteers as we move around bricks, rocks, sand, and water.
