In 2011, their first Leader Training Project, which was designed to offer team members a 2-day workshop on Project Planning, Leadership and Safety; combined with a 10-day Project during which team members could put all their newly learned skills into practice, and get more experience of developing world service work.
All the candidates were put into leadership teams, having to lead a day each of the trip.
They had to brief the team, prepare risk assessments, run the whole day and run the de-brief session each evening.
On this project... The Banyan Learning Tree Weaving Centre will be built at the old "Big Love School" site not far from Banyan Learning Tree School, consisting of a 6m x 8m brick and cement one-room building with metal roof, having one door and 8 windows. It will also include a one-stall toilet building with a metal roof.
Landfill is needed to level the land before construction and cannot be done during the rainy season. It will be done in October/early November 2013, when the worst of the rainy season is over. The site already has a well.
RS has already supplied the funds for the looms, supplies and teachers for the first 3-month weaving course!!!
Jess's funds will pay the teacher's salary ….well done!!!

The project, funded by roundsquare.org, included the building, fencing, a well, 3 looms, cupboards and supplies, instructor salaries (VIEW Teachers Funded - PDF), small orchard and the installation of electricity.
