Preschool term 1 report 25 April 2014

Section Officers for Rutobwe and Catherine Booth preschool do their reporting at CHQ,
narrative and financial for the sponsored preschools
1. Every end of term I gather the Section Officers to do their reporting. We go through all
administration, teaching Finance Administration. Today was my last time to do so here in
Rwanda. Both Robert and I are so happy for all the capacity training we now see the result of,
2. Yes, and we do treat ourselves to tea... and lunch... and some laughs are neccessary
when doing finance... I do believe all officers know what I mean, haha ;D
3. I´m handing over to Salation Army Officer, Captain Dancille, who now will be in charge
of the new Education Department and we hope that a new Sponsorship secreatary will
come to join the Project and Sponsorship team.
4. Major Robert is the best teacher and so good at understanding numbers, expenses
and income, deficiancy and gain... I´m so glad he can take part of this part of my work.
5. Receipts, vouchers, income/ expenses sheets, support documentation, bank statement,
cash/ bank balance... so many things to do, but it helps us build transparency and
accountability. Don`t give up my friends, you are doing good
6. Toothbrushes to Rutobwe preschool Health program. The Children are taught hygiene
and health and it has great impact even on attendance, the children are healthier...
and they teach their families what them themselves learn in school. The same mini project
is going on at Catherine Booth prechool, now they have a wooden shelf where the tooth brushes
are personalised and each brush has its own space :)
Thanks for all beautiful tooth brushes we received. We need lots more, so if anyone has
connections within the dentist field, please send us some more. The health and hygiene
projects are definetely a hit!

The visual impaired sticks are coming to a use

So we received a gift. A beautiful gift. I don´t know how your every day life looks like,
but mine is a pretty simple one. I wake up, I make breakfast and then I go out to work.
 - I can see and smell and move my body, it is a blessing. For some, though, life has
been a challenge, not having the possibility to have full health. Some will be blind, or deaf,
or maybe have a muscle or a part of the body that is not working...
As I said, we received a gift.

Five white sticks. A salvationist officer collected some money together with friends to be
able to send us these sticks. We will now meet with our blind friend and together with his
friends present our work and hand over these sticks to persons that cannot afford to get a
stick by own means.
For me, who has never even used such a stick, I must confess, I´m impressed. Lot´s of
small details and Hmmm, I do not know how to use the manual... but I know the people
at the visual impaired Group will, so I trust them to know.

So, dear friends, we will let you know how this turns out. Thank you so much for giving us
this chance to get to know the friends in the Visual Impaired Group. Be blessed.

Stickers on the move

Today I received a letter, much welcomed!
I love surprises and so do the children and teachers...
Everytime I get this yellow big A4 envelope, I know... Now Catherine Booth preschool will receive a treat.
Was I right this time? Oh, yes!

Two beautiful sticker albums, so nice for the teachers to use at preschool :)

When Section Officer comes in to my office to do term report, I will give it to him so he
can give the letter to the teachers and Children at Catherine Booth preschool :)
Thank you!
