Setting Up The RPU

July 16, 2016

So, another day – still no luggage but it is surprising what you can do with soap and a natural drying climate!

Today we will begin to assemble the basic structure of the RPU. The construction team is a mixed bunch of Mauritanians, Senegalese, Ghanaians, Malians and Gambians. An incredible bunch of guys aged between 20 and 35 with a real will to work hard. 


We really got them motivated and they wanted to get it done well. The project has been attracting a lot of attention with hundreds of people coming over to ask questions. By mid-afternoon we got the structure set up and have begun installing the satellite and the LED TV. 

Tomorrow, we are craning the RPU onto its foundations and that will be another magical moment.
