Project Report | Nov 2, 2017
November 2017 Update

By Dennis Spencer | HANDS AROUND THE WORLD Link Volunteer

Very soon a small group of volunteers will be heading off to Muko School in southern Rwanda to continue with the work that has made so much difference to the local children and community over the past seven years.

The volunteers will be once again be working with a local labour force continuing to improve this ever-expanding school which now has nearly 3000 students, two thirds of whom can only attend on a half day basis due to lack of classrooms. The 1000 senior students who do attend full day classes are now able to enjoy a basic daily lunch due to the completion of the kitchens we were able to build and equip with donations received two years ago.

It has taken three years to build and complete the perimeter wall which now not only protects the school from getting damaged during out of hours, but also prevents damage from flooding. No damage has been reported during this year’s heavy recent rainfall.

Priority at the school this year is to build further much-needed toilets (if finances allow, a block of 20 is intended), install water tanks and replace mud with cement in the floors of some classrooms. All this, along with general maintenance, will cost in the region of £11,000 and whilst our volunteers do their best to raise this money, extra donations are always very welcome!

Our volunteers pay all their own expenses including flights and accommodation and work with a local labour force, who may have no employment for the rest of the year - buying all materials locally is a boost for the local economy.

If you have in the past made a donation this worthy cause, I thank you, but more is always needed please.
