September 2020

In March this year I travelled with Meg to the UK. Meg had invited me to help her to promote the project. The plan was to meet with groups of donors and sponsors to talk to them about my experience of the Kinamba Project which has supported me for 10 years through my education.

It is a privilege to be the first Rwandan ambassador for the project. I am honoured to have had the chance to come and meet some of the people who support the project.

I prepared a talk and was supposed to be meeting sponsors to talk about the children they are helping.

Unfortunately, I was not able to attend meetings or meet many sponsors due to the Corona Virus Pandemic but we did arrange three Zoom meetings to talk to some people. This was a new experience for me.

I had a very good time in the UK. I am a keen photographer and I did a lot with that and I am very happy with how much I improved.

I also enjoyed mountain biking all over the South Lakes area where Meg lives. I love photographing landscapes and this is a perfect place to practise.

I met some very kind and helpful people and I learnt a lot about British culture. I enjoyed some of the food but I missed avocados!

All of this has been a great experience which I would never have had if it was not for the project and the Superwoman Meg Fletcher who is behind the project and my success.
