I am happy to announce that the Room to Read School that I have helped with is due to open this September. I am absolutely delighted that I'll visit the school in early September on my way home from visiting my son and his family in Indonesia.
There were numerous delays in getting the school built. First, Room to Read wasn't able to start construction on all of their projects as they had hoped. Then they had to work out the details of this project with the local community. There were difficulties getting materials out to the projects. And finally, once the rainy season started, it is hard to make any progress the weather. Despite all these challenges, the school will open soon. I'll post more details as they become available.
