Sean Jones is the coordinator at the ROP Center and has been working at with the children in Kigali since January 2010.

Yesterday was one of those days I really look forward to. Last year I started a program of rewarding our top students from each grade at the Rwandan Orphans Project by taking them for a big buffet lunch at a nice restaurant, and for the boys who won it this term, yesterday was the day for treating them.

We all remember recess, that wonderful time we couldn’t wait for when we could temporarily forget about listening to our teachers, taking notes and waiting to go outside to play. Well it’s no different at the Rwandan Orphans Project’s school. Every day at 10 o’clock the Commissioner of Education – the boy chosen by his peers to assist the teachers – blows his whistle and within seconds children begin fleeing their classrooms.
