August saw the Community Liaison Officer for Tullow, Francis Amihere, visit the site to assess the progress of works.

Ahobre and our school construction site at Akwidaa were also visited by a Save the Children film crew. The crew spent two days at Ahobre talking to our site team, the local community and chief, to create a film to demonstrate to other NGOs the importance of community engagement in building safer schools.
