day of the inauguration

September 27th, 2010

September 27 2010 was the day of the inauguration. The SCARAB SCHOOL needed an annex because it had grown from 28 to 40 children.
So we celebrated the renovated school and the second building which is the working room where pupils learn the tuareg crafts.

But it was not only celebration, it also was the day to remember that the money for this project is not yet found – 25.000,00 €.
So we kindly ask you: look on our first page and hopefully you can donate your amount of money so that school can go on for the desert kids.

A scarab always rolls a ball along with him and so the scarab school has its ball, too: a workshop, where the mothers teach the traditional crafts.
