Our boat business is progressing well. Note that the boat is our only means facing the multiple needs of the school.
The boat transports goods and persons between the differents areas of Lake Tanganyika; mainly it sails between Tanzania (Ujiji, Kigoma), Burundi (Rumonge, Bujumbura) and DR Congo (Uvira Presqu'ile Ubwari, Katanga). To be profitable, our boat (of 32 tonnes) needs a new engine of 75 horsepower rather than a machine 55 horses we use now. Currently, we have already acquired through this project life vests and petrol reserves for easy navigation. The remaining funds we receive we care it for the purchase of the new engine.
The sailor Silas Kashindi sighs "Siku tutapata Machine Mpya kazi itakuwa Nzuri sana" this sentence in Kiswahili means "the day that we’ll have the new engine, the work will be excellent." We thank our donors who support us and we need constructive ideas.
Our Boat Business project under the name "Making profitable the boat of Glenn Paige School" is progressing well. The boat that remains the only self-financing of the School to meet the needs of the school (Salaries of employees, the welfare of children and the normal functioning of the School) is an essential part of the existence of the school.
This project that aims the efficiency and profitability of the boat receive various supports worldwide. This has already allowed us to buy 20 life vests and have 500 liters of petrol reserves.
A part of donations is kept in order to complete purchase the new engine 75 horsepower.
What made Mayembe, captain of the boat,tell "Ah! Ni muhimu kuwa na maboya na essence kwa kutembea vizuri kwa ajili ya usalama baharini" Kiswahili sentence that means in English “Ah ! it’s good to have the live vests and petrol reserve to navigate safely”
Furthermore, our boat anchored for two weeks at the small port of Ujiji, Kigoma (Tanzania) where it expects the package to bring in DR Congo.
We sincerely thank our different donors through the world who support our school in the profitability of the boat.
Is there any idea, suggestion that can help to Improve our activities? If Yes, we will kindly accept it! Thank you !
