This morning we left Kigali and are traveling to Gisenyi to visit one of our projects for children with disabilities. On our Journey, we stopped to visit a project started by a group of Rwandan youth. The organization is called “ Past Initiatives” and Christian, the President accompanied us to the project site. Their goal is to help educate the youth on preventing another genocide combined with practical ways to help the genocide survivors. This group has 400 youth followers in Rwanda. One of their projects is to build homes for widows who lost their families.
Some from our group are doing Gorilla Trekking tomorrow so they parted ways for 24 hours. We traveled through the beautiful countryside of Rwanda and arrived at one of my favorite places. Lake Kivu Serena Hotel is only 20 minutes from our project site. We will be here for three nights and work at our project site, More on that tomorrow.
On arrival, we had a meeting with our project partners to plan the next few days. Mona Walls, Pediatric Physiotherapist, and ABW board member, Scott Sankey, Project manager for Rwanda, ABW board member, and financial analyst will review the work and our future investment in this project. We are looking forward to seeing the progress after three years.
