On April 2, 2017, construction started on the new school building at Hijas de Esther at San Martin de Porres. This new structure, funded by the JDVSF, will enable the Hijas to gather for schooling and expand and enhance how the girls are taught. Currently, all classes are undertaken in the first floor of the two dormitories.
The groundbreaking was celebrated with a ceremony led by Fr. Boyet and attended by several JDVSF board members.
