Completed section of the wall.
The existing two gates; the cement will be demolished and the second gate will be sold.
Where the new gate will be.
As you can see, we are increasing the size of the compound by constructing the wall along the edges of the plot of land. The original plot was divided into two homes with two gates, divided by a barbed wire fence between the two. The section of land just outside of the compound was used for vehicle access. Now that it is just Mama Mora and her family living within the duplex, we have taken down the barbed wire fence, are removing one of the two existing gates, and moving the remaining gate to its new location. With the newly acquired land we will increase the size of the garden, improving the home's sustainability effort. The primary school directly next to Faraja is also extremely grateful for the construction of this wall as they have been meaning to get rid of the barbed wire fence and permanently close the existing access way; many children attempt to cross as a shortcut while injuring themselves on the barbed wire in the process.
Tomorrow we will paint the gate, begin adding barbed wire along the top of the wall, and start cleaning up inside the compound!
