Father Nnaso returned from a successful trip to Nigeria this January, documenting the project progress to date. On site is the administration building as well as the newly constructed water tower, which provides much needed clean water to the community.  The next phase of the project involves the transformation of the former post office building into the modern library facility!  See the latest video update on our Media page.

Administrative Building Nearly Complete

As of Father Nnaso's departure in mid-January, construction on the Administration building is nearly complete. Roofing, ceilings, windows, outer doors, window protectors, and plastering of the building are all complete. Electrical work was 85% complete as of his departure. Thank you, Father Nnaso, for your oversight and management during this trip and thank you to ALL whose contributions are making this dream a reality for the people of Abatete! Pictures are available in the Photo Gallery.

We have incorporated our new logo into an updated website. We've "gone Google", and hope that this new host will make it easier for all of our committee members to keep the website updated with project news!
