Dr. Abel Waiswa reports that the new classroom/office building of the Hearts & Hands Christian Vocational School in Kyenjojo, Uganda, is nearly complete. The roof is on, the walls are up (except for the top floor), and the interior walls are complete. All that remains for the “shell” to be completed are the doors and windows, stair enclosures, and the bricking for the third story. (total cost to finish: $14,000) The school plans to be open in January for the first class of 50 young men. Part of their training will entail completing the interior finishing of the building in preparation for the enrollment of 50 young women next year.
