    Myfanwy visits Muko for the first time
    By - Myfanwy Halsey - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Volunteer
    This was my first trip with Hands Around The World. There should have been 4 of us going but due to medical circumstances beyond Steve and Tina’s control it was only Dennis our leader and myself who were able to make the journey from Jersey. Even though I had seen photographs of the stunning countryside, of all the...

    By - Dennis Spencer - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Link Volunteer
    A small team of just two volunteers has just returned from Muko School; this trip proved to be the most productive and satisfying to date. For this, thanks has to go to all the local enthusiastic workers able to offer their help this time! The new school's committee has, as a priority, identified the need to build a...

    September 2014 Update
    By - Dennis Spencer - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Project Co-ordinator
    On November the 7th 2014, a team of three volunteers will return with me for a few weeks to Muko School in Bugarama. Once again we will be working with local people, doing painting, plastering, and laying cement floors. One major aim this year is to install windows and doors to the oldest block of classrooms....

    June 2014 Update
    By - Dennis Spencer - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Link Volunteer
    It doesn’t seem that long since we returned from Rwanda, but it is seven months since our last visit so it is time to start thinking about our return this year, probably at the end of October. I have recently received news that for those children that are in secondary classes, and whose parents can afford the...

    March 2014 Update
    By - Dennis Spencer - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Link Volunteer
    It is wonderful to be able to report that through the support of HATW's Chris Halsey Tribute Fund we have now been able to provide Sylvestre in Rwanda with a leg prosthesis. This young man works as a shoe repairer, and it has long been his dream to wear a pair of shoes of his own! Reports from the School are that the...

    December 2013 Update
    By - Dennis Spencer - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD link volunteer
    Our annual trip to Muko School this October/November was once again a great success! The replacement of the windows and doors in the “old” classroom block went ahead as planned, allowing a lot more light and ventilation into these otherwise hot and dimly lit rooms; although the floors are still mud and the walls...

    By - Dennis Spencer - HATW Project Co-ordinator
    Another year has passed and it is time for a small team to return to Muko School to continue with some maintenance work. Through negations with Immaculee the Headmistress, the main project this visit is to place some windows and doors in the “holes” of the oldest classrooms to allow some light and ventilation...

    June 2013 Update
    By - Dennis Spencer - HATW Project Co-ordinator
    Much progress has been made with the Nursery over the last couple of months - it is now running on a daily basis. There are now around thirty 3 to 5 year olds attending. They have mats to sleep on and are provided with a daily breakfast of porridge, and a meal of rice, beans, and vegetables. A lot of the credit for...

    April 2013 Update
    By - Dennis Spencer - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD link volunteer
    Izzy (one of our volunteers) has, with a lot of help and negotiating from the head mistress, got the local government on side and made much progress on the nursery. It has now got two dedicated classrooms and allows children from the age of 3 to 5 years to attend at no cost to the parents. In turn this is allowing...

    January 2013 Update
    By - Dennis Spencer - HANDS AROUND THE WORLD link volunteer
    We were just two volunteers returning to Muko School in October 2012, but by employing up to 28 local men and women in the three weeks that we spent there, we managed to carry out a lot of essential maintenance work. Much progress has been made on the Nursery with the children having a new block of three classrooms...

    It is still early days, but with the help of charitable donations and grants a total of another four classrooms have been built in the last year, this along with the installation of some computers has made further improvements to the School. It is hoped that this IT will assist the limited number of teachers...
