Making Rebar

Rwanda is a labour intensive society. If a person can do the job, you hire the person rather than the machine. Sometimes you think, there has to be an easier way... but then the person you hired probably wouldn't have a job, nor would he eat, have a roof over his head or be able to provide for his / her family.

On any given day we have 16 - 20 workers at our house.
We're happy to know that we can be part of providing for them and their families.

Thought some of you might be interested in the making of rebar process...

The guy who has made ALL the rebar 'shapes'
You can see I'm not very construction oriented...

This is the guy who puts the rebar pieces together
22 square pillars and 6 round

The pile of pillars... waiting to go up!
