NHA Uniforms, Desks & Benches...

Work at the NHA Kabala School continues in a flurry to make the OPENING DAY deadline. Local Seamstresses are actively sewing, adding the NHA emblems and ironing the uniforms. Area carpenters are creating Benches and Desks. It is all hard work and makes for a long evidenced by the totally worn out Pa Foday asleep on some freshly made benches in one of the classrooms. EVERYONE from USA to SIERRA LEONE is doing their part to bring this project to a reality.

If you haven't contributed to this project, wont' you consider doing so TODAY?

Tax Deductible donations should be sent to NHA, 2216 Goldsmith Lane, Louisville, KY 40218 or be made through the paypal link on our website. Thank you.
