Too much rain

The rainy season started rather late this year. It seems that it will stop late as well. Since one week it has been raining almost every day. I had never seen as much rain as I saw yesterday. It kept pouring and pouring down.

With so much rain, travels in the country side are a nightmare. Most farmers will loose a lot of their harvest since they do not have places to keep them dry.

Only the grass is happy

New nursery school opened in Sidi 2

Nursery school in the village Sidi 2

This is the 6th nursery school we have opened. We are still missing some funds in order to built a house for the teacher and a shaded area for the children.

There are 40 pupils so far. We expect that there will be about 60 for this first school year. Pupils are children of 5 years old and the nursery school is only for one year.
