In partnership with VSO and Rwanda Aid, the disability awareness was organized for Rusizi and Nyamasheke Districts. Beneficiaries for disability programme, Distinguishes Government and private institutions were represented in that event.
Different messages and testimonies were given to the participants to raise the awareness of disability, the rights and ability of the people with different disability and impairments.
Ngwino Nawe, our centre for children with disability, was recently used to help train six teachers from other local centres in music therapy. Alphonsine, pictured below with her class, is an incredibly gifted teacher and we are delighted that her talents are being shared to improve the quality of education for children with disability.
We lived and worked in an extremely remote village with no electricity or running water. Since leaving, the project has been scaled-up and thanks to Debbie Sellers and Sarah O’Grady, it now operates in 28 sectors across Rusizi and Nyamasheke districts. Our year in Bweyeye has given me a passion for the country and I feel privileged to return as CEO.
