We are proud to say that the school portion of this project is complete. Our new campaign will center around the farming of the two acres recently purchased by The Road to Hope. Money is needed for cultivation, seeds, water supply, and gardening tools.
When Road to Hope first visited Mathone, there was an existing school that was meeting in a partially constructed, muddy building. After meeting with local leaders, we began transforming the site into a thriving community center, anchored by a school.
