Delivering Supplies for Bugesera School (post by Suzy and Darren)

After many months of raising funds for school supplies, today was the day that our team got to deliver them.  We made the journey to Bugesera school, over rutted dirt roads that we would think are impassable, but here in Rwanda they call that kind of car ride an “African Massage”. We were greeted by Robert who is the head master here which educates over 600 children.  He told us about how the children take exams.  The teacher writes the exam on the black board in front of the class because they do not have a photo copier…with our fundraising they were able to get a photo copier that they will start using on Monday.  Having a photo copier at the school will be a huge improvement for the students education. Additionally, they needed textbooks which were also purchased with the funds our team raised.

Robert, the school head master, was so thankful for this gift to the school.  It was so fun to go through the textbooks with the kids and have them read some of the lessons to us.  We also had fun looking through the dictionaries with the students and they loved to challenge us with English words we didn’t know.

From the bottom of our hearts we want to thank all of our supporters on this fundraising journey.  Your gift made a difference and will continue to make a difference for many years to come!

MURAKOZE!

(Thank you in Kinyarwanda)
