A heart plunge into Africa..... This trip my 2nd to Burundi was primarily to to visit the Project buildings progress.
Specifically the opening of a new primary school and to check out the progress of the new Medical clinic currently being built. We met some great staff, volunteers and teachers.. they are so dedicated and I admire them all!
Another aspect of the trip was to take Japheth (YFC Sponsorship) & Christophe (Cibitoke Villages of Life Home Dad) from Youth for Christ Burundi to Uganda so that they could see a very established organisation (>20 years) with over 3000 orphans ranging from newborns to University graduates... We were overwhelmed by the generosity of the WATOTO management team
This was a fantastic trip.... I'm still to see any african animals other than a few Hippo's.. This area is now safe enough that I will be taking the family next trip and we will be doing a safari probably in either Rwanda or Uganda! Hopefully next year.
