Water Hunting in Rubanda!

Its now one week over since our two major projects of the construction of  a new Nursery School and an Installation of Pumped water commenced. They are projects that have been waiting for the implantation for  too  long. Lack of enough land and enough funds have taken us over two years trying to figure out what could be the  best solution. Now that we have a piece of land added and some startup funds from our American friends, we can't wait any longer to see them started and complete for use in 2016.  The work is going on steadily and impressive. Its under the supervision of the local partner Engineer Robert Byaruhanga who has given it a high  gear. There is a lot of  excitement that has filled the community and the sky of Rubanda. Water has been the real problem and once found and secured, the water scarcity will be history. Many youths are getting hired with some income to support their education and families.  Please, in the photos below see today's(Aug. 23rd 2015) project updates. The project progress is show in the pictures below in a descending order starting with day one of groundbreaking.
