These are the first two desks for which we fundraised, for the school in rural Bantama village, Ghana. They were made by a carpenter in Kumasi approx 120 miles from Bantama. There are 100 desks and chairs for children plus four for teachers. They were transported by a truck which came down from Bantama to get them. Because the roads are narrow (only two carriageways, one going north and the other south) the journey takes 5 hours each way. The furniture was stacked in parts in the truck, and is being made up on site. The carpenter came up with the load and will work on assembling the desks & chairs over the next few days, then he will return to Kumasi by public transport. The next thing is raising money to buy the teaching materials for the children (books, etc.), get the bookcases made up, then get in the inspectors (Ghana’s OFSTED!), then the school is ready to be opened.
