Ey! Ho! STOP! In case you haven't seen the first story about this project click here before going with this one.
In this second trip, the aim was to build the main furniture for one standard class in one week: 36 chairs, 18 desks, 4 cabinets and shelves that make up the blackboard, 1 teacher's table and 1 armchair.
An improvised workshop in one of the finished awlas was perfect for Lamine, Apolo, Suley and Pepe, the carpenters in charge of all the production.
Once we had the pieces we took them to an empty and under construction class where we could adjust and test everything.
Even future students of the school and some teachers came and tryed out the class for few hours.
