2017 brajirois profile Brajirois, pronounced Bra-jsha-wah, is located at the very top of a mountain, accessible only by 4-wheel drive vehicles. The community has no electricity and no running water. Families in this remote mountain village are so thankful for this school to educate their children! Once children complete elementary school, they go to the secondary school at the foot of the mountain, the Williamson Secondary School.
