Included in this price is, flight, hotel, meals, health insurance ,transportation and an excursion in Rwanda. There is a chance we might be flying through Europe or Qatar due to cost, but more to come about that. We will be building three 120' x 32' buildings, 9' tall in the province of Rwamagona, about one hour from Kigali. The interior of the buildings will be a material called " smartside" and it comes in 9'x4' sheets so no cutting for top piece. The exterior will still be vinyl siding, because it will keep maintenance costs down. We will most likely ship the containers in early September of 2014.
We will also be doing things a little differently this time when it comes to the planning of the work. We learned from our last trip that we need to be more structured and organized in the way we do things. This year we will have one superintendent who will oversee the project. We will have a daily meeting where people are assigned their task for the day so we all can work more as a team.
We will also, again, take Wednesday off , and make a day out of it like we did on our last trip. This trip is not just about building, but also about experiencing a little bit of how the people of Rwanda live and see the country side of this beautiful country.
In the coming weeks and months the planning of this trip will continue and of course you will be kept up to date with information and updates. We will have a couple of orientation meetings to discuss the progress of the trip and to get input from you. Any ideas or suggestion you might have we want to hear about it. We are hoping for at least between 35-50 people coming on this trip, the more the merrier, women or men, young or mature, tall or short, construction experience or not, it does not matter, we want you.
Please tell your family, friends and business acquaintances about Builders Without Borders, share this on your Facebook page or email this to everyone you know. This is an experience you don't want to miss, so mark your calendar, start saving and start looking forward to the trip of your life.
Also for your information, we have a 1 woman and 7 man team traveling to Haiti on Saturday the 29th of March for one week to help construct two roofs for Love A Child at their campus. This is a new partnership between BWB and LAC we hope to build on into the future. Please include them in your prayers.
Please follow the trip on Facebook and on our website. We will try to post every day, but internet connection is not the best in Haiti, so please bear with us if you don't hear anything for a day or two.
Again we would like to thank everybody involved with BWB for everything you do for us. Without you it is not possible to do what we do.
