Music, Sing, Dance = Social Cohesiveness

Large accomplishments have happened recently.  The Multipurpose building is being built, expecting to move in before the first of 2023. The regulations for building in Rwanda changed this year, making it a long process getting the building permit, finally, the community has been able to build. The bricks are installed, the metal roof is on and the internal furnishings will hopefully be done in December.  PSA will be taking part in GlobalGiving on Giving Tuesday, November 29.   

SHARE, a monthly ongoing program has begun in the village teaching family planning to teen mothers and young women.

Computer training for the Irerero teachers is taught in the evenings. Cartoons are shown to the children two evenings a week in the preschool, music, and dance are enjoyed one or two nights a week by the children and young teens. Everyone is looking forward to the new multi-purpose room being completed so more than one activity can be offered every day. Giving the community opportunities for growth, classes, and fun entertainment in the evenings. This is very exciting to the community, as they are happy when they dance and sing, and they do music because they are happy, creating more social cohesiveness.

The teachers will divide the children into three groups to have more manageable numbers of preschoolers. 130 children are now attending Irerero, and the multipurpose building will allow the community to have space to move forward in feeding the 35 children who are 6-month-olds to 3-year-old, adding on to the duties of the Kitchen staff who are feeding the children a nutritional meal every school day.

Soccer continues on Saturdays. The children have received new uniforms and soccer balls so they can compete in the local events.

Research is being done on the infrastructure needed to begin the building of the New Amakondara Preschool. Sanitation is the focus at the moment, deciding which method will be the best for the sustainability of the school.

Vocational education continues. The young women who completed the hairdressing internship can support themselves working in the Kigali salon. They also are teaching other women the basics at the salon in the Cyaruzinge village. The sewing internships are working well, they are being taught more skills in cutting out patterns and sewing a larger number of clothing pieces.
