#173 – Where in the World?
This week’s Sunday Scribblings is rather appropriate for me, as next month, four of us leaders and 9 intrepid young people will be travelling from eastern England to Rwanda.
I’ve never been to Africa.
Come to think of it i haven’t been very many places at all. And Rwanda wasn’t on my list of places I wanted to go (unlike Australia, Canada and India).
Three years ago, my predecessor took some young people to Kigali and a nearby village, Kabuga. This is a child headed family village.
Every household has lost their parents and is headed by a child. War, poverty, disease – they have all taken parents from these children.
We are going back there with young people from here, who were too young to go last time. We will be helping with a new building, we will be running children’s activities. We will also visit a local church and a genocide memorial site.
Its not a holiday, but it is the trip of a life time, and I will be blogging all about it on our return – we go the 13th August.
