AoC’s recent visitors have given the team and I so much help and happiness that it’s hard to express the gratitude we feel. Alyson, Lori, Ellen, Tracy, and Carla have added to our work here in Rwanda in immeasurable ways and we eagerly await their return…. next year? We hope!
Lori, Ellen, and Carla are warmly welcomed to the AoC office by Eric and Eusebe.
Our visitors comprise of a member of our Board, an Advisory Counsel member, donors and volunteers, and new friends. How great is that? They arrived exuding energy and optimism and bearing gifts of excellent resource books and materials plus bags of donated supplies that we are donating directly to our partner schools as well as use in our daily classes, workshops, and initiatives

In addition to help in our office with lesson preparation, job descriptions, performance evaluation and more our visitors came to class with us. The children clapped as we spilled out of my tiny truck. Later, one of the students asked them why my mom had not come with them which we thought was very sweet.
Tracy and our teacher-in-training Jean Bosco compare their silverback mountain gorilla drawings. Carla looks on as Ellen is busy distributing more materials.
Ellen, a former teacher, felt right at home in the classroom and the children loved her.
So, friends, a BIG thank you and a BIG love for all that you have done and continue to do. We can’t do it without you! Cheers!
