Drains and plumbing in Ethiopia aren’t the same as in many countries – here it is much more hands on ! The drains in the Kindergarten school has been troubling for a few weeks now, however this week they gave up completely and thus we had to get the “ plumber ” in.

. This poor man had to single-handedly dig a huge hole and try to sort out the blockage amidst the muck ! He had a wonderful spirit as he working however – shouting with excitement every time he found another thing that was causing the blockage ( a mixture of balls, stones and a teacher’s mobile phone which had fallen down the toilet about a month ago ! )
Our new nursery class is now almost ready for launching – just awaiting a new teacher. However, this week’s news is that once the grade pupils parents heard about there being a special class for the nursery in Oroifa, then they requested a new class for grade 1 ( this was only a vague possibility last week ) – meaning that we will shortly be a school with 9 classes ! – an expensive but exciting challenge!
