Lots of exciting things are happening to make the new preschool a reality!
The land for the new building has been cultivated with beans and corn this planting season as a way to support the community while fundraising for the new school continues. The agronomist helped us learn how to fertilize the crops this time and we are hoping for a great yield because the planting was timed perfectly with the arrival of the winter rainy season. The young women's saving society or ROSCA is learning how to cultivate land and supporting each other by sharing healthy messages.
The land will soon be surveyed by the surveyor to give what they call a "topographic" map of the slope and the surroundings so that the plans for the new building can be adapted for the specific lay of the land.
Meanwhile, wires delivering electricity to the community for the first time are coming closer to the new plot of land and people are excited to have the chance to have electricity - and lights at night!- in their homes.
The brickmakers are practicing their brickmaking and construction skills by building new outdoor kitchens for families in the Village. The water cooperative is learning how to manage a sustainable water supply.
The flute makers have added new flute players to their ranks and they are practicing with the traditional instruments together.
We are so grateful for all your support and all the people send thanks from Cyaruzinge to those of you around the world who are making it possible to build a new future for their children!
