The building of the hostel has been made possible with the help from an association called Seconda Linea Missionaria from Ostia in Rome.
Marandimo Building Contractors and Civil Engineering under the supervision of Franco Fiorina are working tirelessly to make sure that they finish in time.
Fr. Cesare and two volunteers from Franco Fiorina and Giuseppe De Vignani from Italy arrived from Italy on 13th January,2012. The volunteers will help in the construction of Andiamo Secondary school girls’ hostel.

Franco will concentrate mainly on the hostel. Once finished, the new hostel will accommodate 64 girls and this will ease the pressure of accommodation mainly this September when Andiamo Secondary School will for the first time have a Form 4 class.
