Izzy and I will be returning to Rwanda this coming November to continue the work on the School.
We will once again as in past visits be employing local labourers to assist in the plastering and painting of four classrooms and also the Nursery. Further work is required on the toilets, there are also roofs that need repair work to keep out the rain, windows to repair and footpaths required in order that the School pupils do not have to walk from class to class in mud and stones.
It is hoped that during this visit discussions can be made about a team of English language teachers visiting next year.
Plans are also going ahead for the maintenance work programme for 2014 that is necessary to keep the School up an acceptable level. It is also possible that a complete new block of classrooms may be considered.
This is a long term project which needs ongoing funding and we wish to thank all those that have contributed funds to date. All the money that it received goes to the School as the volunteers pay their own expenses.
We will report in more detail on our return before Christmas.
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 in this School with its over 2400 students.
Further funding is still needed to support volunteers who will be returning this coming October. They will work with local labourers in order to carry out more maintenance and painting in the existing classrooms and buildings, which was much appreciated by both locals and even government officials last year.
Further planning is under way to send a team of teachers over in 2013 and hopefully a group of teenagers will also be making a visit in the future.
