school construction!

A Few Quick Facts

  • On March 18th, 2022 the founding stone was laid for the Vickie Rae & Juanita May Academy of Kankrougou.

  • The current school is a tiny one room, dilapidated building. It doesn't fit all of the children so most students have to walk to neighbouring villages 5-10 miles away.

  • The village agreed to pay nearly 20% of the cost of the school - over $8000 dollars... Their average wage is less than $1.25 a day.

  • The school is REALLY coming right along! We had to wait for the right roofing material, but it finally came and the school should be finished in the next month or so, just in time for the 1st day of school in October!
