Rwanda 2013

On Thursday night at Rene's restaurant in Fort Myers 34 people showed up to here more about the upcoming trip to Rwanda. It was a very successful event with great food, upbeat spirit and lots of good information given out. The three concrete slabs for the buildings has been poured, the three containers with 135,000 pounds of building materials has arrived in Dar el Salam Tanzania. Now we just wait for custom to clear them and then the containers will travel almost 700 miles overland by truck to Kigali, where they hopefully will be by the end of August.
Airline tickets has been brought,hotel accommodation is almost in place and now we just wait for September 12 to come around when the first group leaves.
To get to Kigali in Rwanda it takes almost 44 hours from when we leave Fort Myers or Denver ( we have two people from there going as we'll ) of those 44 hours , 20 hours is spent flying.
Every single person on this trip is a volunteer, no one is getting paid to go, everyone is paying there own way, that's dedication.
Builders without borders would like to THANK everyone going, without you this is not possible.
