We couldn't let the year run out without another visit to our projects in Rwanda. Bronwen and Ann have been checking up on things for three weeks over November and December.
What we thought would pass as a quiet summer turned out being spend organising the launch of our latest project in Rutonde, north of Kigali.
Today's excursion took us up-country to Rutonde district, 10 kilometres north of Kigali. We were visiting the Parish of Pastor Immaculee Mukamusoni who runs a children's project up there.
This tour around the charity's Rwanda projects has been scheduled to cover five weeks.
Articles in this blog have frequently mentioned poverty or families that don't eat every day.
One of the reasons for this trip to Rwanda is to find suitable partners that we can work with.
After a couple of weeks back in Africa, we are settling in to a daily routine which had been forgotten.
The knack to surviving in Africa is taking opportunities when they come along, and knowing which opportunities to let pass.
Travelling from Kigali to Rwamagana takes an hour by bus. Learning how to pronounce the place takes slightly longer.
