Art Show: Part 1

It’s show time in the Northern Province of Rwanda for the children of Nyabigoma Primary School and the adults at Shingiro.

Arriving at the school early to hang the art, Valerie, Eric, Fahad and I are happy it isn’t raining – this traveling art show can easily get damaged from the rains common here in Kinigi.
