“Whenever I walk through the gates of the school yard and see the new school and the beautiful hand washing stations I feel so proud that my daughter goes to such a great school.” This is what a young mother told me when I visited the Madaoua Primary School. The construction of the first block of classrooms was completed a month ago and classes for kindergarten and 1st grade students began in October. The quality of the construction and the details put into the building are quite impressive. A lot of time, effort and pride went into the construction and is reflected in the final product. You can see in the photo the awnings over the doors and windows and the light fixtures.
