first room finished

on Sunday, January 24th, 2016

They say that the wait is always worth it, here are the last names of the amazing people who donated to finish our first brick project in the refugee camps. We are thankful to the artist Fico for having written the names and for his work with the young saharawi refugees in the art school Escuela Saharaui de Artes. The little girl you see in the picture is Teneza, we witnessed her birth one year and a half ago when her family had only one khaima. Now she has a room, where she can play and grow until she can cross the wall that separated her and her people from where she belongs: Western Sahara.
