Greetings from Rwanda! We’ve just completed the first stage of our trip. We visited our Local Partners at Urugwiro Centre and Ngwino Nawe and observed some of their sessions, demonstrating their maturing music as therapy practice.
We discussed with them the exciting new step for Project Rwanda and their involvement in training the next generation of music as therapy practitioners in Rwanda. These exchange visits will take place via Tubakunde, an umbrella organization for disabled children’s villages in Rwanda and we are very excited to be collaborating with them to deliver the conference next Friday. We’ll write more about this next week!
Our visit to Cyangugu, southwest Rwanda was an opportunity to meet up with staff at the centres and Rwanda Aid, our hosts, who we have known since 2010 and are now old friends. We shared many songs, much laughter and a few goat brochettes. It was our fourth visit there and it gets harder to say goodbye each time. Many thanks to all our supporters.
Caroline and Nicky
