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

Unfortunately for years now our boys have had very few activities to occupy their time at the Center. As you can imagine they had a lot of free time to kill in the afternoons after school and on the weekends. It was even worse during the holidays in between school terms. Their options were pretty much limited to kicking around a football, singing and napping. After we had moved from Nyabugogo to our new home in Nyarugunga I wanted to give them an activities that are more organized and formal. I wanted it them to have options to choose from that would fit their interests, whether they be music, sports, etc. I also wanted activities that could be practiced outside of the Center so they could represent their home and have something to be proud of.

Well the Rwandan school year has ended and the long holiday has finally arrived. This hardly means that all of us at the Center can relax. In fact, having the boys back from school means we have more work to do than ever before. Thankfully we have some help.
