Pili – tunashukuru kwa mapokezi mazuri (kuanzia mwanzo hadi mwisho)
Tatu – Tumeanza ziara yetu kutembelea umoja wa manispaliti na kupata maelezo ambayo tumeyapenda sana.
Nne – Tumetembelea kiwanda cha mikate na kiwanda cha mbao. Tumependa sana
Tano – Nimevutiwa na kazi za wajasiriamali jinsi wanavyoshirikiana katika kutafuta maisha. Wajasiriamali hawa ni watu wazima lakini bado wanajishughulisha na kazi za kuzalisha mali badala ya kukaa nyumbani
Tulitembelea Makumbusho ambako tulifahamishwa shughuli za vijana hasa baraza la vijana linavyoendeshwa. Pia tulikutana na rafiki wa Makunduchi na kuwaelezea Makunduchi tunayotaka iwe.
Tulitembea skuli na kuona ufundishwaji na mashirikiano baina ya wazee na skuli ambayo ni mazuri na hivyo kusaidia ufaulu wa wanafunzi.
Vile vile tulienda kwenye mchezo wa kuangusha chumba kwa kutumia mpira mzito “bowling” Mchezo huu tumeupenda sana na kuufurahia na natamani na sisi tufanye ili kiwe kivutio cha watu wazima.
Pia tunawashukuru wote waliotuandalia vyakula vya aina mbali mbali na kututembeza maeneo tofauti. Ahsanteni sana.
Mwisho tunatoa pongezi kwa uongozi wote wa Sundsvall . Tunaomba tuzidi kuwa na mashirikiano mema. Udumu umoja wetu. Tupendane, tushirikiane, tusaidiane. Ahsanteni.
By this time Bredsand school just outside of the center of Sundsvall is becoming well known inside and even outside Sweden. Being a suburb with many students coming from abroad, specially from Somalia, where war situation has left many without or with very little education it was noticed that school results were below average.
The solution found was to engage a couple of assistants to the teachers with the main task of helping the children and at the same time keeping parents engaged and informed on what was going on as far as school progress was concerned. This way of building bridges of knowledge and contact with the homes was named “Bridge building” and it has proven very successful as rates of students managing their studies increased. It was the destination for the Makunduchi delegation’s visit on Thursday afternoon.
Thursday morning was filled with workshop on methods to prioritize development issues, choosing visionary subjects. This exercise was successfully performed and from 20 suggestions the group could finally agree on three priorities: Education at the lower levels, Entrepreneurship for younger people and Culture.
In the evening the whole group could finally engage on a spare time activity so we went up to the Södra Berget Hotel for a game of bowling, a new experience to all. Coming up on top was Mr. Mussa that besides being the agricultural technician for the Makunduchi ward showed some natural talent to role the bowling ball and successfully getting down more pins than anybody else in the evening.
