First Day: Our Every Day Hope team arrived first on the scene. Shortly afterwards, a local Pastor arrived. He had a big smile on his face and was dressed to work. He was soon followed by the President of the community’s directive. She was very happy to see us as the groundbreaking day had finally arrived! The individual who donated the land for the project, was present as well. He, too, was overjoyed that this day had finally arrived.
Ground was broken and the atmosphere was joyous! Everyone worked well together. It was a hot day like most days, but no one seemed to care. We were digging trenches where the waterlines that will provide clean domestic use water would soon be placed. We were about to change the lives of the community members for the good!
