The students started to implement the results of their participatory design process at the KESBO site. The day started with a meeting with a local welder, who will build the climbing structure from the students’ design.
With help from the boys, the group got a great deal accomplished. By the end of the day, the swingsets, which had previously sat unused were cemented permanently in the ground, the holes for the tire obstacle course were completed, paint and other supplies were purchased and delivered to the site, and the construction of the climbing structure was almost complete.
An electrical short caused a delay in the welding for the day. Luckily, the ISAC staff’s extensive network of connections allowed them to bring in a skilled electrician to fix the problem. The electrician generously donated his time to KESBO when he learned it was an orphanage.
