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

It’s been pretty hectic here the last few weeks, what with Tamsin’s whirlwind (too short!) visit, the arrival of Sean’s brother Ryan, and me starting to write stories for UNICEF, so I haven’t had much of a chance to write anything. Although this happened a few weeks ago, I still wanted to tell you about it.

About ten days ago we were informed that our Rwandan Orphans Project Center would be hosting an event for the government in Kicukiro District to celebrate the pan-African holiday, the International Day of the African Child. This surprised us because ten days is not very much time to prepare for such an event. We knew we had a challenge ahead of us, but we were up to it.
