Things are getting exciting in Nyamirambo. Last week we signed a lease for a house to put the street children into.
The days are counting down to the launch of our creche at the hall in Nyamirambo. We have been waiting for the older children to return to school after the “Christmas” holidays.
This is the day mothers all over Rwanda have been waiting for with eager anticipation since the beginning of October. The new school term starts today.
The twelve children identified from the daily porridge programme have now moved into accommodation where they are being fed. This is an important step forward for us.
The street children have been attending school for a month now and we have even heard comments about how polite and well-behaved they are. Somehow, I have my doubts.
Since the beginning of the new school year in February I have been meaning to visit the friends I made when working at Alpha Community Academy last term.
On Saturday I was at Scripture Union's Rwandan Headquarters in Kigali to help run a one day bible camp.
On Monday the children here returned to school after the break, and so did I. Like the primary 1 and 2 classes I did not arrive until after lunch.
It has been another busy week at the school in Kinamba. On Wednesday morning the nursery children were taken for their annual vaccination against worms.
