Bryan's Rwanda Experience 2009 travel blog


Today was our first day with World Vision. I did pretty good considering we got in to our room at about 4:30am today and got to bed around 5:30am. We were up at 9:30am and on our way to the World Vision head office in Kigali for the morning. We had a great visit with the staff that takes care of the mail. This was very interesting to learn what process is involved when a sponsor sends an email to their sponsored child. One thing that was interesting was that when a sponsor sends a letter a response letter comes back within 15 days from the child. The mail may take over month to get back to Canada. They also try and make sure the children answer the questions.

In the afternoon we went to Nyamata and got to see a few of other people's sponsored children. It was a great time. We played soccer with the kids and had a great time.

Tomorrow we are scheduled to visit the children sponsored by my mom (Stella) and Eithne. I will post some photos tomorrow with more of the stories. It is now just after midnight and I need to try and catchup on some sleep.
