Bori Extension

Our school in Bori was founded by Steve and Leelee Wiwa Tanen, the school directors in Bane. Like our original school in Bodo, which started meeting in St. Andrew’s Anglican Church, the school in Bori was also meeting at the Assemblies of God Church in Bori in June 2012 before we started helping them.

In addition to the six crowded classes meeting inside the church, the school in Bori also has two other classes meeting directly outside the church.

Before we started helping them, the school was able to begin work on these two future classroom buildings. All of this construction has been funded so far entirely through local resources and local efforts.

Our first effort at helping the school in Bori was to send funding in July 2012 to enable construction to start on a rust-proof aluminum zinc roof for this classroom building.  See some of the photos below for the results.

Pictured here is one of the classrooms which does not yet have a cement floor. Once we have finished roofing the building, our next priority will be to provide funding for a cement floor to make this a fully functioning and usable classroom space.  This is the before photo.  See immediately below for the after photo.

Our first round of funding to the school in Bori in July 2012 provided the rust-proof roof for their first classroom building.

Our school buildings in Bori are now entirely finished.  Both buildings are shown here in July 2015 with the borehole tanks that provide the school's water on the far right of the picture.

Using entirely their own local resources and with no help from us, the school in Bori established a small computer center in 2015.
