One month down...
February 20 was my one month mark!
I started a soccer league at the transit center on Friday. The kids are so excited. Even the older men and women want to play, so we're setting up different age divisions and then setting up teams within them. It will hopefully get off the ground on Tuesday!
The youth also want to start an anti-AIDS theatre group, so I'm going to work with them on that.
AND--the best news from the transit center is that we not only got approval from HCR Kigali to put all the primary school refugee children into the local schools, but we also have enough money to buy all of them uniforms and books! (School is free, but if you can't afford a uniform, you automatically stand out as one of the poor kids....so we're very happy about this development!)
We're also going to provide kindergarten education at the transit center.
Unfortunately, the secondary school kids still can't go to the school...So we'll have to work on that. But good news so far!
