Construction of the Ban Nongboua Primary School in our village is slowly progressing. Here is a photo from this morning. We expect to reach the 50% constructed point next week and pay the contractor their second 40% payment of about $23,400 USD

One of the girls in this photograph is not waiting for school. She doesn't go even though her two sisters attend. Her mother told us the family does not have enough money for school fees, uniform, books and supplies. Want to help?
