Mill projects ‘Gitukura en Kabere’
Burundi – Mabayi – Friday December 04th 2009

Meeting the responsible persons for the start of the 2 ‘mill projects’ Gitukura en Kabere.
Because of a heavy thunderstorm we arrived with some delay in the work shop of DAB (project 2008). Despite that the reception was not at all less cordial.
The development of projects in the region of Mabayi ensures a positive note, with the revival of the confidence in the future as a consequence.
The necessary funds for the realisation of the projects were handed over and the cooperation agreements were signed.
There was an atmosphere of friendship and seeing known faces again made every moment unique. It speaks for itself that a lot of positive messages have been exchanged and we got the affirmative message from the responsible persons that they will all what needs to make these projects a success.

Project: Equipment of dormitories Shyorongi – Rwanda – December 21st 2009

Only the floor covering and the ceiling are missing in the new dormitories.
The order for the beds, mattresses and blankets were by placed by Christine.
So as soon as the building is fully ready the equipment, sponsored by ‘Vleugels van Hoop’, can be brought in.
The classes which were till now used as dormitories, can again be used for their initial purpose, which will allow an increase in number of students.
