Today we continued scoping out more of the projects for the disabled. Azalea arrived to look at the medical side of things for students.
This is a well-run organization that cares for children of all disabilities. We visited a home for the severely mentally and physically handicapped children. Both Mental and physical disabilities on the same child is a very discouraging to witness.

Preparing students to integrate with a regular school
The border crossing into the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) was a fascinating experience. About 38,000 people move freely across Rwanda and DRC each day selling all kinds of goods. The Manager of the border is a friend of our guide and is a member of the Adventist church and knew the work we were doing. He gave us a great insight into the crossing.
Exploring medical and dental clinics opportunities
Rwanda is a beautiful country – especially the Lake Kivu Region has a lot to offer.
We took a boat ride to see some very hot water bubbling on the shores of the lake and then to scope out a place for lunch with the next group. Paradise Island is a potential place for a catered lunch.
