On February 18, 2015, the Tubehotwese Cooperative in the northeast tip of Rwanda opened their new nursery school funded by World Dancer, Sherry Robin. The Cooperative had been planning this project for several years as a way to get their young ones ready for primary school, and as a source of income to be shared among Co-op members.
They used Sherry’s donation to repair a badly damaged building and turn it into two good school rooms, build furniture, buy supplies, and pay for a training course for one of the teachers (the other teacher had previous training). There are 80 children, attending the school, ages 4 to 6, from the Tubehotwese Cooperative and other families in the area. It costs the parents $15 per month to send their children to school. Justin will be working with the co-op leaders and the WD4H Business Committee of the Board to monitor the budget of this new business enterprise.
So many thanks to Sherry Robin for the generous gift that made this possible!
