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.
 
 
 
 
 

RUBUYE PRESCHOOL VISITS

 
 

The child without uniform is total orphan no one to take care of him. He depends on the preschool where he gets happiness.
It was wonderful visiting Rubuye Preschool that is none sponsored but only supported by the parents.  03.09.2016 was a good day for me and the Education coordinator plus the section officer to visit Rubuye in order to see what is going on there. But our main aim was to take them Preschool materials e.g. books, pencils, pens and so many other things. It has 44 children attending the Preschool with two teachers. The parents are really struggling to pay the teachers and they pray that one day they will get someone to lean on. We had wonderful time with the children as shown below. There are so many challenges they are facing. Like paying the teachers, no classrooms and the government have warned them not to start the year in the hall. We are praying that they get help from well wishes, The school has nice children and competent teachers

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.

Teachers' fellowship 11 Dec 2013

The theme was...
transparency and accountability; how to ensure financial accurancy...
and of course to enjoy Christmas; enjoy each others company, give information, share
a meal together and assure our teachers they are doing a great job and give them a
Christmas gift; a calendar for the year 2014.
Role play; to practically do the financial administration...
 
and how to write receipts, how to save and document bankdeposit slips/TSA receipts for
the report and so on...
 
Lunch conversation and sharing together
 
The Christmas gift is handed to the teachers by the Section Officers present.
 

"How to do Teachers evaluation" with Captain Dancille, new appointed Education Officer
and "How to fill out the Registration Card" together with the parents when meeting,
Major Anna-Maria
Filling out the registration cards, noting information to use in the meeting with parents.
-And if you see an e-pad... the officers here have been blessed by a donation for a project
that enabled us to buy and train to use this modern tool. It is nice, we can see it is really
making a change in work environment, the officers now can read books, send emails,
write documents, use the internet... and it is helping a lot.
We encourage them all to use it, so we hope they all will see the potential to help them in
their work so they continue to train to get the capacity to use it.
 
Handing out CDs and books to the sponsored schools. Some of the non sponsored school
could also get some small gifts :) thanks to a small donation to Sponsorship department.
