A Visit from Mr. Josua Burkart, Horizont3000 E. African Director
On the 1st of October, St. KOnrad Integrated Vocational College had the blessing of hosting Mr. Josua Burkart, the East African Regional Director of Horizont3000. He arrived at School at 14:00 Hours local time and was enthusiastically entertained by the school community. His visit followed from the Director’s visit to Horizont3000 Headoffice in Wien on Sept 2, 2010 where he, Mr. Wilhelm Tutschek and Miss Eva Kreil from the St. Konrad College Bebaase Verein met Mrs. Gabriela Grosinger, concerned with Projects and Programmes of Horizont3000 in Africa. The purpose of the visit was to find out ways of partnership with this Organisation for the benefit of St. Konrad College. The Visit of Mr. Burkart was a fact finding mission. Mr. Burkart was impressed by the project and hopefully ways will be found out to access the support of Horizont3000 in St. Konrad Integrated Vocational College.
Mr. Burkart was also introduced to the three community based Organisations, namely Namuda for men, Nawepe for women and Nayefode for men. These organisations are also the Director’s attempt to bring about rural development in the area. The members of these organisations were indeed very glad for the visit and welcomed him among others with Kikiga dance followed by gifts.
