It has also been evident throughout the mission of the role and importance of the AAW groups in all the villages we have visited. They are like the ‘backbone’ of the community and the support received from NZ AAW groups is highly valued and appreciated.
Meanwhile the boys, our project team, arrived home late last night, exhausted, but as heroes for the enormity of the work they have done this week with the village toilet project. A guard of honour was formed by the Golden Oldies and they were clapped and applauded by the team as their tired bodies made it to the dining room to collapse. They have done an outstanding job in installing all the pipe work and toilets/basins for what is becoming a massive planned official opening this coming Sunday afternoon. Next week I will post the story and pictures.
