Many villagers (mostly) women & children (ages 6 to 75) joined the Hands to Honduras volunteers. Together we moved a huge pile of bricks across the schoolyard to the construction slab where we'll be building a classroom and library. There are 90 schoolaged children living in Las Palmas (I think most of them were at the job site at one time or another during the day). Their former classroom was a thatch hut, which was torn down to make room for this new, sturdier structure.
