Baraka means blessing.This house has indeed been a blessing to us especially during the rainy season. 

Barbara, a PAAV member in Ireland was used by God in making Baraka House a reality!

We now have a multi-purpose house that today functions as a dining room, community room, and Chapel.  

God bless Barbara and all of you who have contributed to make a lasting difference at Gitombo Coomunity Schoolthrough PAAV. The Kitchen is adjacent to Baraka House. Soon we will have  stoves installed!
