The plans are put to paper and then translated into a grid around the land.
Boards labeled with letters and numbers are laid around the eventual outside walls of the building to create a grid. The grid is used to lay the foundation walls and the supporting columns in the appropriate places.
A local stone quarry is donating half of all the rocks we need, so our cement costs have been reduced accordingly.
And by making our own bricks, we are building a good home within a good budget. Please help us finish the project by making a donation at www.ghanamakeadifference.org.
In Bali, Hindus have used banana leaves as the containers for floral offerings to spirits and deities. I’m in Ghana, not Bali. And I’m a Mormon, not a Hindu. Nevertheless, I think my three children holding this banana leaf would please any deity. We took this photo on our hike to the Wli Waterfalls in the Volta Region of Ghana.
I’m not offering my children, but please join me in making a financial offering to Ghana Make A Difference (www.ghanamakeadifference.org)
