It's been a blur! There was so much going on that we've lost track of the specific dates. In Ontario, fundraising for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon is in full swing--you'll hear more about that next month. Another shipment is being prepped and it is the type that required a lot of driving, pick ups, sorting, and more finicky packing than usual. In Dekpor, the purchasing of all items for the apprentices was completed, the sports court at Dekpor Basic School campus is in progress, there have been a few jobs happening at Dekpor Central Shops, more street lights are shining bright, the new borehole is hooked into our water system, uniforms are being made to measure, and the work done to improve our school computer lab.
