One Year Later, The Omanjor Reading Project

Revisiting project sites is an important part of our process. One could say that once a place because a project site, it always is. We visit occasionally, to examine our work, interact with our clients and learn from our successes and mistakes.

Our trip to Omanjor in October 2016, taught us a lot. Number 1, Find a better way to secure our recycled tarp roof! This is a challenge as we always juggle cost, quality and beauty… and we lost this round. We will be replacing the roof. As always, ideas are welcome > sociarchi(at)gmail(dot)com.

We spoke to some students and teachers and we have great news! After we finished the project, Omanjor D/A JHS recorded remarkably improved BECE scores. Three of the students got into Mawuli SHS, which is a good high school, and a first for them. Now we aren’t saying we’re responsible for the hard work of the teachers and students, but they told us that the reading shed and green space we built for them greatly improved their school experience. Don’t believe us? See and hear for yourself! (NB: The sound quality is bad, and our clients are rather shy)
