Frances and I arrived in Rwanda in 2010 - We fell in love with Rwanda, but particularly this very special village resting on the hilltops between lakes Burera and Ruhondo in the North. We have learned so much and continue to learn. We have made deep friendships in the community and hope that this project can provide an environment where more friendships can be made.
The vision for the sunzu village project is simply to provide a beautiful place within the village where the community can come together to learn, play, share ideas and create opportunities for themselves to overcome their many challenges that stem from poverty. There are close to 3,500 residents in the 5 villages of Nkenke Cell (that includes Sunzu), the majority being children and youth. We hope that this library is just the beginning of many more dreams that can be built. We aim to have many playground activities scattered amongst the property where empowerment through play can grow. For more information and to follow our journey please visit facebook.com/sunzuvillage
