The Students Helped With Roof Repairs

Thanks to $200 from a generous private donor, materials were purchased for repairing the roof and the broken gate.  There was no money left for hiring a mason, so everyone (staff and students) pitched in to do the actual work.  The kids were very excited that they could help.  Rain and hail over the weekend delayed the project.   But the repair team was able able to start and complete all the work on Monday, just in time before the Eid holiday began on Tuesday, 15 October.

The  materials needed were girders, bricks, cement and sand.

This was the process.  First, the girders needed to be painted. Then the roof materials were put into place.  Bricks were fitted into the girders, and then mason work went onto the top of all this structure.  Many hands worked hard all day, and the new roof was completed.
