Grand opening of the nursery school!
After six months of construction, the first phase of the nursery school was opened with a celebration. Over 100 officials, parents, children and other guests attended the celebrations.
The foundation has newly built a nursery school in the village of Rugarama. It consists of a classroom, an office for the teachers, a kitchen and toilets.
The water supply works by collecting rainwater. The lighting is powered by solar energy. The furniture was built by a youth cooperative in the neighbouring village.
The Director of Education of the district, the Executive Secretary of the sector and the founder of Sustainable Villages Foundation gave a speech. A local group of young people performed traditional Rwandan dances.
The children who will attend the nursery school are between two and four years old. The five-year-old children will then go to the pre-school, which is attached to the primary school. The foundation has organised a trainer who will conduct a training course for the caregivers and also the parents.
The foundation is currently looking for funding to build two more classrooms for the nursery school.
