A ceremony to lay the first stone at Kateke, a school recently approved, was scheduled for Friday, July 13 – we arrived as part of a caravan led by police with flashing lights. Expecting a low-key event, we were stirred as children lined the path singing and welcoming us. The community has waited for this moment for several years, longing for a school and education for their children. There were speeches by officials, the Ministry of Education and RISE…and singing and dancing, cake, a gift of chickens, and much gratitude! Building materials had been delivered to the site, and construction began immediately!
