RUBUYE PRESCHOOL NEWS

 

In 2012, after seeing that there was a challenge of children who were in the community, without any proper care the Salvation Army, Rubuye outpost encouraged the parents to start a preschool using the hall of the Salvation Army. It started with 100 children. It has now 1 teacher. This school is self supporting; there is no other source of income apart from school fees which is very low. This money is used to pay the teacher. They don’t have classrooms, playground, they don’t have feeding programme and some children just come from home without taking anything because of poverty
Rubuye preschool is in the southern Part of Rwanda in Kamonyi District.  The area did not have  a preschools around since the children were walking long distance to school and very early which is not safe to them. The parents committee is put in place to for see the development of the school and to make sure that the parents are paying school fees for their children so that the teachers can get their salaries.
Rubuye preschool is not sponsored by the salvation Army, but it assists them to get learning materials and other things things like desks and chairs as we did this year from the donations sent to us from AUs territory. we also provided them porridge for one term
the school has 80 Children attending the preschool from 43 children last year. You see the number is really growing tremendously. The school is really struggling on their own to pay the teachers, but it's not easy to them. sometimes the teachers do not get all their salaries but they never stop working. They are committed.
The school is facing challenges of classrooms and the government has given them warning not to use the hall as classroom but have separate place for the children.

VISITS TO 9 PRESCHOOLS:

I have the pleasure to visits 9 Preschools in our Command. These are Rubirizi Preschool sponsored by Sweden/Latvia territory, Rutobwe Preschool Sponsored by AUS territory, Catherine Booth kayenzi sponsored by AUS territory, Nyagatare, Gituro Preschool sponsored by AUS territory, Rwimiyaga Preschool sponsored by Netherlands territory. The five Sponsored preschools. I also visited the none- sponsored preschools. These are; Bitare Preschool, Rubuye Preschool, Rukeri Preschool and Runda Preschool which is sponsored by small donations.

RWIMIYAGA AND NYAGATARE GITURO PRESCHOOLS.

The Visits started on 01.09.2016 from chq going to Nyagatare and Rwimiyaga preschools. The journey started at 6.30 a.m and arrived first at Rwimiyaga at 09.00 a.m and we found children waiting for us together with their teachers. And later the section officer and the corps leader came in. I had to speak to the children and the teachers concerning the preschools. When I asked if the children were taking Porridge, the teachers answered me no for two weeks. The corps leader closed the porridge flour in the office and he was not giving out the key because of his personal issues with the section officer.

I had to solve the problem before handing over the School materials which were books, pencils, pens,markers,erasers,plastic cups 48,plastic basin1,jugs 2, drawing books, black board erasers, A4 papers 1 ream,  2 boxes chalks, and other small things. And all this came from the donations sent for gifts.

The place is very dry, for almost one year without rain, no food water and people are running away to look for green pastures. The children are only depending on the porridge given to them for their going. Animals are dying because of lack of water and grass.  And even life has really changed for everybody. The school has 58 Children with 2 teachers and 1 cook/cleaner and it’s doing well. On behalf of the children they appreciate so much for th

                     

NYAGATARE <GITURO PRESCOOL. 

I arrived there at 10.30 a.m and I got the children learning English. It was wonderful to hear them read the words like jug cup. The section officer was able to introduce me to the children and the teachers and later I had time to speak to the children telling them the purpose of my visit. The Children were very happy to hear that I had brought them materials for learning because some had no book to write and even pens.

The place is the same as that of rwimiyaga, very dry and people are really running from the place to look for food and water for their families. They get water from very far and one Jeri can is 400 rwf. Which is too expensive? Even the section officer has to hire somebody to bring them water because the tank they have has no water and it needs repair before the rain starts.. So life in Nyagatare is very hard.

I had time to hand over the preschool materials to the section officer who is the school administrator. I gave out; exercise books, Drawing books 3 dozens, Pencils 50, pens 10 erasers 6,2 sauce pans,2 basins, 48 plastic cups, 2 jugs,1 football ball, chalks 2 boxes, blackboard dusters, manila papers, Note books for teachers, red pens. The Children are happy playing with the ball, though the son is too hot as seen. Thanks to all our donors for the donations for gifts. They need to have classrooms.

RUBIRIZI PRESCHOOL VISITATION 27TH OCTOBER 2015

 
Visited Rubirizi 27 .10.2015. The Children attending preschool are 53 and 30 will be going to primary. Rubirizi preschool is doing well and the teachers are committed in their work. But challenges that they are facing is that the salary is too small and the cost of living is too expensive. Because they earn 25,000 each which is equivalent to $50. They don't have classrooms, they use the salvation Army as a classroom and learning is not easy. They have divided the hall in two for P1 and P2 concentration not easy. They always pray to get someone who can change their lives by increasing their salaries and even having classrooms. And even to have bonus to appreciate their work. Parents also came to look way forward for the preschool after finishing the preparation of the land where classrooms will be constructed.
The problems facing the preschool is that they don't have playing equipment and the school is just near the road and the children are always playing near there. The children come to school with no proper school shoes, most of them put on plastic sandals. Just see the shoes . If we can get a donation for shoes then we can really appreciate for that so  that they look uniform.

MONITORING VISIT TERM 3 JOHN GOWANS RWIMIYAGA 04.11.2015

 
It was time for Sponsorship Secretary Captain Violet Nyongesa to visit John Gowans Preschool for term 3 monitoring visit to see the development of the school and the problems facing the preschool. On 04.11.2015,Sponsorship secretary, Education Secretary Captain Dancille Mukafuraha and Strategic planning coordinator Captain Emmanuel Ndagajimana had a privilege to visit John Gowans preschool that is sponsored by Netherlands territory.
We started our journey from Chq at 6.30a.m and arrived there at 10.00 a.m. We got teachers children and the Administrator of the school waiting for us and they welcomed us well. We had time to talk to the children and the teachers and later we remained with teachers only .We  discussed the problems facing the school at large and why the children are moving from our school. The main answer was there are no classrooms and the Salvation Army multipurpose hall they were using as classroom was destroyed by heavy wind due to heavy raining that is raining.
This is the view of John Gowans  preschool and this is the multipurpose hall that the roof was carried away by the wind.

RUBIRIZI PRESCHOOL

Rubirizi Preschool is situated in the outskirt of Rwanda, Kayonza district. The preschool is in the interior part and was started by the parents who are very poor and could not afford to pay the school fees to other expensive schools. The Preschool started in a very small building with 100 children and teaching was a problem. Later th moved into the salvation Army hall where they use it as classroom. The Children are too many and they cannot fit into one room 63 children being taught in one room is a problem.
Rubirizi Preschool is in need of Classrooms and Playing Equipments for the children the school is just near the road and Motor bicycles are too many. They have no proper shoes for coming to school. These children really needs help.
