Construction begins at Hijas de Esther

Construction works prepare cement

In April, Construction began on Hijas de Esther, the girls’ school. This new structure, funded by the JDVSF, will provide more space for group lessons and gatherings.
Workers have laid down the concrete pillars which will support the building. Strong pillars are essential for the safety given the prevalence of earthquakes in the Philippines.
The plan is to build all of the pillars in May before the onset of the rainy season in June.
