First of Four Classrooms

The deaf students at the IDEA supported Sagbayan, Bohol school are all anxiously awaiting the opening of their new classroom building.  It’s a pretty ambitious project but we are taking it step by step.  IDEA has enough funds to now complete one of the four classrooms.  This means that the kindergarten and grade 1 deaf children should be able to occupy their new room by the end of January.

Our all deaf construction team is able to handle every phase of building this facility.  We also have a few younger recent high school graduate boys who are undergoing on-the-job training.  They will eventually chose a specialty area such as welding or masonry but still be trained in all aspects of building so they have the versatility.

Below is a breakdown of the funds we need to complete each phase of the next three classrooms.
