More school places

Sat, 2016-01-23

It is Saturday and we have been invited to the home of Marie Therese and Jean Pierre Millindi. The couple own a property on the outskirts of Kigali where Marie Therese runs a Saturday Church for needy children in the local area. Along with Bible study, the children are fed and provided with other support.

Horns and hooves

Sat, 2016-01-23

Mission Rwanda is moving into livestock. At Rwamagana we have purchased a cow to provide for a family where the mother has cancer. In Kigali, during our last visit we acquired another four hoofs with the support of Loanhead Parish Church to provide for a family there which is struggling to eat.

Kazungo's new school

The search has started. We have four boys who have finished primary education and are now looking for a secondary school to go to. This is our opportunity to join the annual stampede to get the children into some of the secondary system's fast-disappearing places.

The Rwamagana cow

Fri, 2016-01-22

On our previous visit to Rwamagana we left some money for one of our six widows there who had fallen ill with cancer. We also bought a cow which was to be used to benefit the widow and her children. Today we are back in Rwamagana and took the opportunity to catch up with the latest news.

Soap production

One of Mission Rwanda's activities is helping widows set up in business to support themselves and their families. An opportunity presented itself this week in the form of Jane, Pastor Jean's wife in Rutonde.

Nyamirambo school results

Fri, 2016-01-15

Some time back we started what was called our Nyamirambo Street Children project. Over time this has evolved into the Nyamirambo Children's project. We met the children yesterday and even though it is only a few months since we have seen most of them, they are still a lot bigger than we remember them.

Progress at Rutonde

Wed, 2016-01-13

We have come to Rutonde and our children's porridge project outside of Kigali. The rains are beginning to return and the road is still soft from a heavy downpour two nights ago. Our driver weaves carefully among the potholes and puddles to protect his creaking suspension.

Going home

Another tour comes to an end. Over the past month I have been able to catch up with our projects, meet old friends and make new ones.
