It was a day of celebration! The mayor’s official representative was on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony.
Then it was on to the computer room where Carolyn demonstrated some of the curriculum to be used in the computer-assisted learning program.
The celebration continued in the hall across the street, with speeches and entertainment from the YEGO dancers. These youth learned to dance through the YEGO dance program and are now able to find employment as dancers at weddings and other celebrations.
Support from the district
Yesterday YEGO received a contract to use the building space for 3 years rent-free, with the option to renew. This is a huge vote of support from the district.
The mayor’s representative praised the work of YEGO and is using YEGO as a model for other organizations wishing to do similar work. The district sees YEGO as a partner in working for improvements in the lives of the Rwandan people.
The celebration concluded with bottles of pop for all and interviews with individuals.
