Friday was the last day volunteers worked on goat pens in Kagondo Village. When we arrived in the village, we found our third pen practically finished (thanks to a very ambitious and excited participant), helped finish a fourth pen, and started a fifth pen. The students were forced to measure and construct the goat pens without help from the local experts for the entire day, and they did it! I was very impressed, and the pens turned out great. Everyone was exhausted to the point of clumsiness by the end of the day.
