News letter from student at KCS

4th Installment of "What Kigali Christian School Means to Me" is brought to you by Nadine (6th grade student.) 

My name is MUTONI Nadine.  I am going to talk about what Kigali Christian School means to me.  Kigali Christian School isa school which came to teach us about the wordof God and to know whom God is and it came to teach children to love God and respect God and come to teach children English and french, so that they can speak all languages and there is a library which helps us to know all languages and we can understand them in order to win the test by reading books.  It teaches us to love all people and respect everyone we see.  Kigali Christian School has good teachers that helps us to learn well and we can help other children.  They teach us many languages that if we grow up we can be good peoples who obey God and respect God, and helps other peoples.  They teach us to lead all the students well.  That if we grow up we can build our country in peace like, Presidents, doctors, Ministers, they helps us to be clean and study hard.  Thank You!!!!!!! Nadine.

News letter from student at KCS

"What KCS Means to Me"
(Unedited response from Doreen in 6th Grade)

My name is UMUTONI UWASE Doreen. I study at KCS and KCS's moto is Discipline and Excellence. What KCS means as a school which has some people who are Christian and honest. They love God and they want young youth to know about God and what they must do to know what God want for them. Another thing they do, they teach us well and we study well, but all of that is God who gives us strength to a do all of that, and we eat well food which has nutrients and the sometimes pay for us school fees, they are so humble and kind, they teach us the word of God and sometimes we have some fun and they help us in other lessons, especially science, math, English. They tell us how we can take care of ourselves everywhere we are. So I encourage people to come to Kigali Christian School. - UMUTONI UWASE Doreen.

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.

Rwanda 2013

Fun number facts about Builders Without Borders

Since BWB was founded , we have raised almost $ 2,050.000 and for the upcoming trip to Rwanda we raised about $ 249.000. We have shipped 135.000 pounds of building material to Kigali. A return flight between Fort Myers and Kigali in Kilometers is 24480.12 and in miles it is 15211.24. If you only travelled one way between Fort Myers and Kigali in kilometers you will be flying 12240.06 and in miles it is 7605.62. The total trip cost per person is $ 2500.00 wish is a little bit more then you would have paid in 2004 when BWB was founded. When we get to Kigali Christian School you will be greeted by 740 students and our " oldest " person in our group is 79 years young will say hello to 63 staff members together with the 48.1 average age of the group. We will be flying all together about 43 hours and we are 34 people going on this amazing trip, 27 men are going and we have 19 new BWB people who never have been to Rwanda before.Dan Dodrill has gone to Africa 14 times, something for our youngest who is 13 to look up too. BWB is 9 years old and on this trip it takes 8 different flights to get there with our 7 brave women on board who has travelled in 6 different time zones just to get there.  At the school we will see the 3 containers we shipped over with the 3 buildings inside them. It took about 2 months for the containers to get to Kigali  with 1 purpose in mind...TO BUILD THE BEST SCHOOL IN RWANDA.
