The YL Foundation Lays a Home Foundation

GARY: This is our first foundation laid for the first home. It was really interesting because the villagers came to me and said, “Mr. Young, you really are not a foundation, are you?”

Gary and Jacob buy a cement mixer for the 5 percent cement used to make bricks.

I said, “Yes, we are.”

They said, “No, no, no.”

I asked, “Well why do you say that?” And what did they say?

JACOB: They said, “Because people who work with a foundation don’t work at all.”

GARY: Yeah, they also said, “NGOs don’t do what they say they’re going to do, but you’re doing it.”

Here they’re laying the bricks, and what an exciting time it was. They didn’t even have a cement mixer, so I bought the cement mixer when Jacob took me shopping.
