Children’s Academy Community Meeting
May 9, 2011
Yesterday afternoon we had another Children’s Academy community meeting. There were more than 30 children and adults that attended and a core group of a dozen that were there for the entire meeting of nearly 2 and a half hours.
The focus of this meeting was two-fold:
- Discuss possible income generating activities along with a loan and accompaniment that may be available to us from Grameen Creative Lab
- Get feedback on the latest drawings and plans from BAR Architects and Architecture For Humanity.
It’s wonderful to witness the enthusiasm of members of the community for this project and to see how serious they’re taking design issues along with the development of a shared vision of how this school complex can help the community develop in addition to providing the children with a quality education.
