What a month this has been! There have been so many things going on at the Rwandan Orphans Project Center that we have barely had time to catch our breath. We’ve been fortunate enough to have several new volunteers who have come to work with our children. Two of them, Anna and Louise, are very good friends of Jenny’s who decided to fly down from the United Kingdom for about a month to help out with our art program and also to assist us with the upcoming graduations of some of our older boys. Louise, an artist, had taken on the task of painting a huge version of the Rwandan Orphans Project logo in our dining hall. She spent several days and many long hours working very hard to complete it, and boy was it worth it. The end result is nothing short of amazing, and everyone, from the staff to the children and even our visitors, are massively impressed with her work.
