Matipwilli, Tanzania: Building a new kitchen at the school

Posted in Tanzania on January 20, 2012

We started work at the school today for the new kitchen. Their current dilapidated one feeds 400 students. I will no longer moan about not been able to find a clean bowl at work or the fact that someone else is using the microwave. We dug out the foundations and shoveled 4 trailer loads of sand and 4 trailer loads of gravel for mixing cement today. Thankfully we’re mixing the cement tomorrow, it was tough going today. Especially as the humidity and sun really zaps your strength. That being said it was another productive day and very exciting to start a project from scratch.
