On November 16, 2017 parents, students, teachers, and community members celebrated the graduation of another class! It was a day full of gratitude and joyful communal activities. This year, in addition to the dancing and singing, Mwanzo hired cooks to prepare food. We were so pleased that we were able to offer food to all. As always, parents and staff at our Mwanzo Education Center volunteered their time to clean the school and compound before the formal ceremony.
We are amazed at the progress being made with construction of our second story at the primary school (see photos). The exterior walls are in place, and in just the past week the roof has been put in place. Before our eyes a beautiful school is making itself visible to Rabuor and nearby villages. Thank you so much for your generous gifts!
Side by side with the school construction, Mwanzo has begun the process of installing several large underground water cisterns. This will prove so valuable in capturing rainwater and reducing our (occasional) need to purchase drinking water for the preschool and Grades 1-3 students.
Our Executive Director, Loyce Ong'udi, shares her profound thanks to all our donors, who make all the above work possible. She also passes on holiday greetings from the Rabuor community, who continue to commit themselves to the initiatives that you support.
