    UPDATE From Rabondo

I was there during that time and the work she did is very great. I really appreciate on behalf of the RCPUSA, the community and the Learning Center. Though the learning center is running...

    The Learning Center in Rabondo has its challenges and success.

    Moving Onward in Rabondo
    By - Beverly Gilbert Stone - Project Leader
    The Distance Learning Center has now been in operation since October. A slow start was actually refreshing while we worked the kinks out of some of the equipment.  With only two computers, class sizes are very limited.  The library is popular for browsing. With help from RSSAF consultants, we face an exciting new...

    By - Bevelry Gilbert Stone - Project Leader
    Slowly but Surely the Rabondo Learning Center project is moving.  Our major focus since February is to get the word out to more people while we seek donations of serviceable laptop computers. The building to house the Center needs only interior work to begin classes. We know the story of the turtle and the...
