Making the Mud

Hard Work! -- The mud has to be the perfect consistancy, we dug into the red earth, added water, and dig dig dig, stomp stomp stomp. We used our leg muscles to stir the mud!

These are the children who will benefit from this new school building! They are super excited!!!

To start the mudding process, clumps of grassy dirt are put into the walls first.

Adding mud to the walls and carrying it to the building was a large task... we also had to carry water from a well that was nearly 1/4 mile even make the mud!
