We have been coming to Rwanda for something over ten years now. The people and geography are becoming familiar to us and with each trip easing back into Rwandan life gets a little easier. Kigali is certainly bcoming familiar to us. We have long-since learnt to expect the unexpected, like the electricity suddenly disappearing or waking up to find no water in the taps as happened this morning.
Our porridge project in Rugende was initiated in April. This semi-rural district just outside Kigali is one where under-fed children are not hard to find and the project provides a daily meal for these children. The church running the project for us organised a grand opening with local dignitaries coming along.
Those who have been following the blog will be familiar with the porridge project we have been running in Rutonde for several years. The project has fed malnourished children and helped their families to earn income for themselves. So far, this has usually taken the form of crops grown from seed or breeding animals.
