Visiting Golden Monkeys in Rwanda

Muraho (hello) from Rwanda! We are having a terrific experience. We’ve spent three days painting a children’s library and soon we will push off to Musanze. Our donations of books and laptops were well received. The children at the school are super energized with our presence and we play hard during the daily breaks in the school day.

Our accommodations have been simple but sufficient. There’s lukewarm running water. Food has been varied, but lots of fruit and the local shish kabob last night was delicious. Clean drinking water is always available.

Tomorrow will be an early morning to see the rare Golden Monkeys followed by a visit to a cultural village for drumming, dancing, and local food. Students are in good spirits, engaged in the work, and learning to work as a group.
