Transportation and Occupation

While some of the roads are paved, the rest of the roads are not. Some of the people prefer to use bicycles in the local areas while the rest prefer to walk. In February 2012 the town's mayor made demands to get the national grid and the town connected, thereby ensuring constant electrical supply to the entire town.

I am looking for donations or help in establishing a mechanical trade school.

We already have the land donated and most of the heavy and large equipment and tools donated.

We need to construct a 50 x 50 foot(pole) barn to get started with 6" concrete floor and 220 volt
