After the huge welcome, we held a town's meeting on the school grounds. We asked the parents some questions about education to get a sense of their struggles with the educational system. We also asked them to elect a committee to oversee the building of the school. After a great meeting with the parents, we were invited to a house for a special lunch prepared for us. Since the committee members ate lunch with us, we got to have our first official meeting with them right after the food was gone. We discussed each of our responsibilities for the building of the school and came to an agreement about the building materials for the new school. The committee expressed the commitment of the parents to the education of their children and agreed that the community would provide most of the labor needed for the construction of the school. We decided to meet with the committee again in a week after our budget plan was finalized.
