We received this update from A Partnership in Caring (APIC) volunteer Maria van Vonderen. Today Maria and fellow APIC volunteer Carolyn Rideout visited SAVE, one of the first Catholic missions in Rwanda. It is also home to the Mother House of the Benebikira Sisters. It is just few kilometres north of Butare in southern Rwanda:
Visited the Saint Bernadette School in SAVE.
It is the oldest school in the country with over 800 students.
Met with 11 students who receive funding to attend school.
They were very engaging and curious about life in Canada.
