Further progress in Mohoni…

Mohoni project leader Lesley Stephenson has just returned from Mohoni. She reports that the rebuilding of Lemlem School has made further progress. The first buildings will shortly be roofed, and the excavations and foundations for the second construction phase are already underway.  The local government has almost completed the new rainwater channel around the school perimeter which will divert the heavy flow of rainwater away from the school grounds and prevent rainwater-induced erosion. All the assignments which the school had been asked to fulfill by the end of March had been completed.

EE board members Thomas Baumann and Lesley Stephenson will return to Ethiopia in May with two further EE members for the official bi-yearly reporting visit to Hagereselam and Mohoni.

Construction work in Phase 1 of our Lemlem School project has made wonderful progress. At last week’s yearly prize giving at the school, the parents and members of the local government commented on the high building standard, as EE project manager Melkamu Abate reports:

‘So many of the parents came to me and asked me to greet you. They wanted me to give their thanks to EE and its supporters for all they are doing. Members of the Woreda (local government) came to inspect the building and expressed their full satisfaction with the high building standard. Meaza and Kokeb and the construction team are working very hard indeed. And whenever there is a need for unskilled workers, the community jumps in.’
