One of the real challenges faced by our friends in Gusau, Nigeria is the fact that they live about 150 miles from the encroaching Sahara Desert. With the shifting climate trends, hotter, more dry weather extremes are a fact of life for about six months of the year. The issue of powdery and/or gritty dust is an everyday occurrence...and it settles everywhere. It is extremely difficult to get rid of it by sweeping or dusting- hence the computer “dust bags” shown in a previous post.
Despite challenges, the construction of the girls’ dormitory is progressing. A second installment of funds has been sent and received.
