We now have some preliminary design sketches for the school.  This is exciting progress as we can see that the Ministry of Education is supporting this new school too. We are excited to share these design ideas with our community.

The sketches show all sides of the building.  They comply with standards set by the government and will use local brick and stone. There will be windows and doors to allow free circulation of fresh air and easy entry and exit for the kids.  There will be a ramp to the upstairs so kids that have mobility challanges can get to their classrooms easily. 

We hope to addd a kitchen building and of course facilities for sanitation and hygiene.  There will be gardens nearby to help support the food services.  We hope to add a performance room and stage so that the performing arts is well supported.

During the building phase, we hope to build eco-toilets that have been designed in Rwanda and can help with the elimination of waste as well as the creation of fresh and wholesome fertilizer for use in the gardens that will significantly increase crop yield. 

We also hope that there can be workshops for the artisans who will make costumes, drums, and the wooden flutes that Batwa people have played for hundreds of years, known as the "Amakondera".  For that reason, we hope to name the new center the "Amakondera Institute for Culture and Early Childhood Education".

Andt for now, we have a good start!
