Steps towards the profitability of our boat 4

The boat "Mleci - Center for Global Nonkilling"  is a property of Glenn Paige Nonkilling School . It just completed two years of navigation on Lake Tanganyika.

After faithful service, some planks of the boat are  deteriorated and rotted in regular contact with the lake water.

We planned during this summer holidays (July, August) to put the boat in dry dock and repair (remove and replace the damaged wooden planks). We targeted 82 planks. Work will be completed in early September 2016. One of the sailors said "mtumbwi unapashwa ukarabatiwe hizi miezi miwili ili utembee vizuri mwanzoni  mwa shule " This Kiswahili sentence means “the boat  must  be repaired during these two months so it  can sail well in the next school year”

As for the engine 55 uses the boat, it is very old. It broke down during this school year  three times. This engine is currently being repaired in Kigoma (Tanzania).

 Through this project we hope to complete the funds needed to buy the new engine (75 horsepower) suitable for boat.

We sincerely thank our donors who made profitability of our school their concern, and who think of nonkilling  future of humanity.

 Thank you for suggestions to improve our project.

 Best nonkilling.

School construction 8

We arrive at the Glenn Paige Nonkilling School at the end of the school year 2015 - 2016. Tomorrow is the proclamation and the official closing!

The local community will gather at the school. There will be a warm ambiance : shouting, crying, congratulations, gifts, cheers and howls of disapproval !

In the closing speech, the Headmaster will announce the opening of the final year of primary school (form 6) for the next school year. This is in line with the request of local authorities and  pupils’ parents . Then ,our pupils will  have the full program of nonkilling  courses.

With anticipation, we can say that this school year was positive: classes went well, the security situation was quiet, few cases of dropouts and desertions and all current programs have been completed.

As for the construction of new buildings, we are  bringing from  Uvira (250 km of the School) bricks, concrete iron  and cement ) by boat to complete the elevation of the walls. The latest hardware will arrive at the school early July.  We planned  to purchase, transport and store the equipment in order to raise the walls in the months of July, August and September 2016 (dry season) for two reasons: to avoid incessant ruptures of stock materials under construction  and avoid disruption of work during the rainy season.

Also, parents of pupils have had enough time to stock up on food to feed themason during construction. For it is the parents who prepare the meal and serve as assistant masons. One of the moms talk "Kazi za shamba zimekwisha, hiyi kipwa tutaanza shinda tunasaidia ku kazi za masomo  ya watoto wetu"   this Kiswahili sentence mean “field work is completed and  this dry season, we will help to build the school of our children” . We hope to start roofing work in October, 2016.

 

Much thanks to our nonkilling friends for  getting to this step.

We will be happy to receive suggestions for the  good continuation of the work.

 

Best nonkilling.

Steps towards the profitability of our boat (3)

The boat “Mleci -Center for Global Nonkilling”,  property of Glenn Paige Nonkilling School  is unique on Lake Tanganyika :

- This is the only boat owned  to school   wich  makes  school possible. Indeed it pays all the costs of the school.

- The boat carries two obvious badges: Flag of the DR Congo and a sign of nonkilling. This last  badge reminds all people of the region to renounce killing. It also reminds them many seminars that we organized in Burundi, DR Congo, Rwanda and Tanzania to become center s of nonkilling.

This boat, for peace and nonviolence, is used to radiate a school for the future leadership of nonviolence in the region. It is a noble mission.

At present, the amount is increasing for us to equip the boat with a motor (75 hp) more powerful and efficient in navigation.

Here, we thank particularly Manlius Pebble Hill School which chose our school as a subject of charity for this year's  in Boat part. We are grateful to his Team of fundraising that initiates good deeds in our favor.

The headmaster  of School said  " Réellement  l’Ecole Manlius Pebble Hill School sert la cause   de non meurtre en rentabilisant notre Ecole”. This french sentence means  “Really, Manlius Pebble  Hill School serves the cause of nonkilling by agreeing to act for the profitability of our School"

We also thank all our donors who work for global nonkilling, for their unconditional support to our pioneering school in the African Great Lakes Region.

Dear beloved suggestions are appreciated.
