This past Monday Ndanu, Tumaini and apprentice Regnaldi completed a double size stove for Mawanda secondary school. A double stove is two normal size stoves next to each other. It accommodates four large pots and teachers’ small pots. Tämän viikon maanantaina Ndanu, Tumaini ja ’oppipoika’ Regnaldi saivat valmiksi kaksoishellan Mawandan yläkoululle. Kaksoishella tarkoittaa kahta normaalikokoista…

(suomeksi kuvien alla) Mawanda Mkei primary and Liana built a water tank and a stove in autumn 2017. It was clearly explained from our side that to receive such a large subsidy to build a water tank, a school needs to be committed to do all the other improvements and environmental activities as well: To…

At the end of last week a stove was completed at Kirachi primary. The school has a nice stone building for a kitchen – unlike many other schools at which we have built stoves so far. But their cooking facilities were just the same, the standard three-stone fire on the earthen floor and outside in…

Travelling builders may lack all the comforts of life, but the gleam of sunrise on the slopes of Kilimanjaro and the full moon in the early morning sky are unique. Mawenzi in the front…
