Orphans who are coming of age and have to leave this orphanage in the poorest part of western Rwanda, need to build their own dwelling in order to have a place to start an independent life and raise a family. In general people in Rwanda build their houses of natural material such as wood and clay. They need the following building materials: Clay blocks: $.10; Wood pile: $1.00; Corrugated iron for the roof: $15.00 per section. The project will be supervised by the nuns at the convent where the orphans were cared for during their childhood.
