The second school year — and the first to start on time — at the Dougbe River Presbyterian School began Monday, September 2 (Labor Day in the United States). This is the first time that the people of the nearby villages have known in advance that there would be a school year, since last year at this time we were still scrambling to get ready and didn’t know how soon we could open.
In August, three new bridges were dedicated and opened in the Whybo-Buway area, in the last five miles or so of the approach to the school. These were built under the supervision of Welthungerhilfe (aka German Agro Action) and will be a huge help to us and anyone else who needs to move people or equipment in the area.
The bridges are cause for celebration, and there was a big one in Sayuo on August 16. All of these photos are worth a click that will make them nice and big on your monitor:
