worked at a very fast pace and completed the project in mid 2013 – which greatly increased the capacity of the school.
The two delegates from the Japanese Consulate visited HOPE’s Zia Colony School to observe the status and progress of the school. The delegates were very pleased with the welcome they were given by the young students of the school.
The Japanese Consul’s delegates were taken to all the classes of the school and the library, computer labs, chemistry lab and the vocational center. They were extremely happy to see HOPE’s school had progressed so well within just a short span of one year and some months of its completion.
