Building materials were delivered in Konkourona last week, marking the start of construction of three new classrooms. More than 300 villagers mobilized to gather sand, pebbles and water to make bricks. Others dug holes for the foundation. The foundation will be poured and bricks will begin being laid this week.
The overcrowding of classrooms is so acute that children are instructed in open air with few books, no desks and limited learning materials.
