OfC Classrooms & Dormitory
In April 2009 OfC obtained a plot of agricultural land in the village of Bellabe in order to support our educational programs, including an Agricultural Demonstration Center (ADC). Although the ADC has not been a primary focus (with only pigeon peas planted), future uses of this land include researching and testing alternative methods for maintaining soil health; and identifying and testing alternative crops than have traditionally been raised in this village, ultimately to enhance the nutritional value and yield of crops raised in this area.
A small house was built in 2009, with a bathroom and running water. A well was also dug. Over time a second floor has been added, a second bathroom (outhouse with running water) has been built and improvements to the well have been completed (cement apron and metal door). In June 2010 classrooms were constructed with metal doors. These have been used as classrooms, dormitory-style accommodations, and kitchen.
