Back to Kigali

May 7, 2013

Unfortunately due to some problems with our house, Olivia and I have had to move back to Kigali for the last 6 weeks (!!) of our contract. The move was quite abrupt and I was very sad to move from my home for the last 8 months. I will continue to work in Kigali on the literary journal and commute once a week to do some English program  training for the staff at INATEK and it was the right decision to make. Nevertheless,  it won’t be the same as living in Kibungo. Below, I’ve posted a few more pictures of the beautiful East Province.

The harvest celebration was put on by an NGO started by my good friend. Called ADAPT, it helps farmers transport their crops more efficiently and created a community-based loan system to fund the education of local children. Above, a member of the Rwanda  Development Board applauds the efforts of the farmers and ADAPT.
