9-10) During our visit to N'Tchiega in February 2005 we were very pleased to see that the work on the school was well advanced: These pictures show that basic structure, up to the level of the roof, was already in place.

When our African contactman visited us in Belgium in July 2005 he brought the good tidings that construction of the school at N'Tchiega was now complete. 'Photographic evidence' will follow soon.
