One Email: Two Months Achievement

We have received only one email, with photos attached, from RYDA since the previous issue of RYDA News in July. But it's all we need to realise just how busy the training centre has been with special activities and events on top of the normal day to day running of a large, very successful, vocational training school which offers free full board and tuition to 200+ orphaned or vulnerable youths.

Enjoy. You have been part of bringing about this success.

Dear Doug,
It has been a while without hearing from us . The work has been hectic at the centre. However better late than never. Please I have sent photos in three messages. Let me hope you have received them.
Do you remember in the July News there were photos of art students and their teacher creating life-size 3D statues? A new creative activity for RYDA students.
In the first message I sent photos of the finished sculptures. This was an attraction to everyone who came for the graduation ceremony. Many of our guests took photos. This prompted the Guest of Honour to place an order to RYDA to make one sculpture for the Directorate of Industrial Training (DIT).

Almost finished.
Which one is the real person?

The graduation ceremony was for the 2018 graduands who have now been in the working world for about 9 months. They were helped by RYDA to find their first employment.

The graduation started with an exhibition, then the prayers. It was colourful and successful. The graduation attendance was 506 people. The guest of honour was the Director of DIT. During his speech he applauded the RYDA work and called on government to support the RYDA institution.

Look carefully at the background for the ceremony and you will see RYDA's matoke (green banana) plantation is looking very healthy. This is part of their drive to become food self-sufficient. They are an entrepreneurial people. Sometimes even their school facilities can bring an income.

Among those guests who attended the graduation, one booked RYDA centre for a wedding ceremony for her daughter. This wedding attracted 325 people. They used the compound in front of the office.

The building in the background
of these two photos is St. Margaret Hall.
You helped to build that.

Please keep up your prayers and financial contributions for this hard working and inspired organisation which will continue as an African success story through your support.
