Messima School Update

This season the Messima school project has really taken off thanks to the help we received from our Messima School campaign at the beginning of the year (watch our video on the campaign, if you haven’t already). The roof is being framed and constructed, and a positive buzz is circulating the region, with Messima and surrounding communities excited on a planned September opening of the school.

Check back for status updates over the next couple of months. And in the meantime, a few pictures from the project site. Thanks!

Roof framing


The carpenter harvests and creates planks and beams for the school's roof from trees on the community's property.


The community invests in the school by providing much of the labor to build and construct the school building. Here, the shovels sand to be used for cement.
