Our Projects’ assistant, Hannah and Music Therapist, Stephanie Jayne will be travelling from Kigali to Gisenyi in North-West Rwanda, where they will stay for 6 weeks. They will be sharing skills with social workers, care staff and teachers to enable them to use music therapeutically with the children and adults in their care. They will be working alongside staff at Noel de Nyundo, Rwanda’s largest institution home to 520 children and at the Ubumwe Community Centre, a day centre for children and adults with disabilities.
Hannah will be attempting to run the 93 mile distance between Kigali and Gisenyi across the next four weeks to raise money for the project which will take place from August 3rd - September 13th. To sponsor Hannah click here to visit her Virgin Money Giving fundraising page. Hannah is also keeping a blog so you can track her progress across the coming weeks.
