Our next project at Gwegwesha was to build outside benches near the playground area that would allow the teachers to sit and watch the children while they were playing in the playground area. These were the only tools we used. Notice: no power tools. We began by using a pickaxe to break the ground and make holes for the poles.
Next, we used a hand saw to cut the poles.
After constructing the poles, we added the planks for the seat of the bench.
When we returned for our second week, we tarnished the benches. Now the teachers were able to use the benches, while the children played in the play area. Not only were the teachers able to use the benches, so were the children and US!
