On our trip, we held official opening ceremonies for three schools: Gbumbeh, Bendu, and Walihun. Our team constructed the schools in Gbumbeh and Bendu during the height of the Ebola crisis. Because large gatherings were prohibited to prevent the spread of the disease, these villages were unable to hold official opening ceremonies until this year.
The communities in all three villages were so thrilled about their new schools, and the celebrations in each village were long and joyous. Each ceremony was unique and each one truly celebrated the importance of education.
