Latin School in Rwanda!

Linda just returned from Rwanda with Latin School students who spent two weeks there. They raised money to sponsor a summer camp for about 50 children and served as junior counselors at the program. They worked together with the Rwanda Youth Leadership group. The Latin School students bonded well with the campers and the Youth Leaders. They also spent time learning about Rwanda culture, history, the Genocide and the WE-ACTx programs.

They loved the mural we did on our previous trip.

They also went to the Kigali Freedom School and Claudette explained the program to all of them.

It is so great to see smiling familiar faces and that they had a great time.

To hear more about the trip you can read the Latin School twitter.
