Time flies, the last week of this trip is coming up. The rising temperatures and the increasing humidity are making it difficult to work outside.
Ramadan is starting today. I am amazed how people can stop drinking during the whole day in this climate. You have to have a very strong will/faith.
News from the LAP
The LAP has registered 17 students for the regional athletic competition between schools.
All 7 girls and 6 of the 10 boys have qualified for the next level.
Next competition will be April 10th.
We have just equipped one of the water wells we have at the LAP with a 5m³ polytank. The water well was previously equipped with a hand pump.
Now the water is pumped in the polytank by a downhole pump powered by the solar panels.
This water is used for the gardens and the animal workshops.
Lunch program in primary schools
Granary levels are very low and the next harvest is not before November. There are always some difficulties for families to go through what is called “la période de soudure” (time between the end of their own food stocks and the new harvest). This year will be particularly difficult.
This is why lunch at the primary school is very important for the children.
ASAP is 25 years old!!!
We are launching a campaign for “food”.
It costs 25 euro to feed one child for the whole school year. Do you want to celebrate with us and help? You can donate via the QR code below:
