Thursday - morning spent investigating other natural water spring sources with the Water Technician to try an connect to the village, as the mains connection may take more time and money. This involved hiking around the hills - good exercise in 30 degrees.
After another delicious Rwandan lunch including freshly butchered chicken, Tricia, Gabriel our teacher, Diogen a university student, who speaks good English and Chris walked an hour to the next village to an important District Leaders meeting. Held in the woods, it was attended by senior leaders and 60 locals rather like our Parish Council meetings (see photo). The leaders outlined the new land registry system being adopted so important in a small country the size of Wales with 12 million population. We were given a platform too with our interpreter to outline our school and community centre to gain local support and volunteers to help make it happen.
The evening meeting with our builder Fabien confirmed our costs to complete our building.
Margaret spent the day showing villagers how to make jigsaws and play dominos whilst sorting through the teaching resource cupboards - a task more difficult than it sounds.
