ATPROJECTS BUILDING HOUSES NEW LIBARY FOR RURAL PRIMARY SCHOOL   Leave a comment

This building built by ATprojects in Ombuda Primary School now houses its school library that serves more than 200 students. The new library was officially opened at the end of 2013 and witnessed by ATprojects staff who were invited to attend its school graduation.

The building was built years ago by ATprojects following a tribal fight in the area which saw building in the school grounds burnt down.

Ombuda Primary School sees ATprojects as its ‘friend’.

The school is about a rough two-hour drive out from Goroka town and is located in the Asaro area in the Daulo district.

Preparation for this year’s footbridge project in the Yelia LLG of Obura Wonenara district took a lot of planning and yes, calculations  – why? Because ATprojects knew that to carry a full cement bag and heavy construction materials to the construction sites would be alot of work, taking in consideration the weight limitations on small aircrafts which operate some of these rural stations.
