Andreas Koesling and a fearless team of young helpers will be at it again in 2019. During the 2017 campaign, they built playground equipment using available materials, that included: soccer goals, volleyball court, see-saw and swingset. Here’s a picture of the mayor’s assistant and the Chef du Village taking the first swing!

In 2019, our plan is to build some bathrooms at the new school. Do you know how to swing a hammer or assist these kids with drilling holes and pouring cement? Write us an email telling us about your experience and desire. And who knows, it could be you “nailing together” with the villagers of Mbar Toubab to build a better future.
