|2005; Welcome to kids|
We received over two hundred kids in a single day and yet we had no premise of our own than a little rented shelter. Our decision was to take a few and return the rest of the kids home. It was the most saddening time I ever saw. Telling a kid who is happy to go to school to go back home. It was disappointing.
|200: Negotiating the house rent|
As time has proved, it's incredible how we often under estimate the size of a mustard see. Rubanda Solidarity school began like a mustard seed that now is attracting many birds from near and far. The school that began with 90 students for a study year under a tree is now hosting 286 and only limited funds and space.
It began on foreign grounds, grew to hired field and slowly by slowly extended its roots into its own humus soils. This has taken us a journey of eight year with roots digging deeper.
