Water Catchment Project in Vanuatu - UPDATE
- Work began early at 8 AM.
- The old roof was removed, and the beams were taken down.
- New beams were installed, and a new corrugated iron roof was put up.
- Facer boards were painted white after removing the old, ineffective guttering.
- Two tins of paint are still available for painting the newly roofed classroom.
- Many villagers helped on this day, totalling 37 people, but it's expected that fewer will be available on Day two due to church commitments.
- The roof was completed on this day, and the rooms are now watertight and rust-free.
- A significant amount of painting was done with the assistance of Aaron, Ben, and a female friend.
- A decision was made to reposition two existing water tanks so that each of the five roofs will have a water tank on either side to catch water.
- Only 10 people were available to work today as most of the men were at church.
- Tomorrow's tasks include installing gutters and more painting.
It seems like progress is going well, and the community is actively involved in this construction project.
