At the weekly UK-Nigeria meeting(16/3/11) were told that Fantsuam Foundation was hoping for a grant from the French Embassy to help Reubens and his staff develop Attachab, but that this is not a certainty. FF haven’t yet heard the final verdict about funding from the French Embassy, and for now John is supporting Reubens’ work. Reubens, his staff and volunteers are expected to be working at Attachab for at least another week. As well as using the bamboo in the construction of the two-storey building, Reubens is also training a local carpenter who usually works with wood to use it. Reubens was a refugee form the Congo but now lives in Nigeria. He is also a musician and performs in Abuja we are told.
