A SCHOOL BAG FOR A SMILE
After our first trip to Rwanda in November 2018, we returned in January 2019 to support 2 schools and their most vulnerable children on their return to the school term.
During our last trip to the village of Nsunzu in the province of Musambe, we provided 125 primary and preschool children with clothes, bags and basics (i.e. soap, toothbrush etc).
