Appreciation, by Africa Earthship Project Facilitator Shannoh Kandoh
I am sure by now, all of you must have arrived home after doing a fantastic job on the Earthship Goderich Waldorf School Building project in Sierra Leone. The community, teachers and children are so grateful and proud of your work which has added a new look to the Rokel community. With the build, people are visiting every day to look at the structure with insatiable wonder. I am pleased to let you know that the local volunteers are doing well at building the other classrooms and will be able to complete the whole structure.
Please accept our compliments for making our dream of a child friendly school environment come true. You can personally say that, With your participation and contributions, children in the Rokel community have opportunity to go to school.
Thanks so much for being part of this great achievement..
God bless you all.
Earthship Biotecture offerred 10 internship places on the build in Sierra Leone, Africa in October of 2011. The chosen interns worked alongside Michael Reynolds, the Earthship crew and 30 local interns.
