Irrigation Project Update

It's almost travel time and we couldn't be more excited. All the travel dates have been sorted out and we're ready for take-off (though most of us still need to do some final packing). The team will arrive in the capital of Rwanda, Kigali, on May 23. We'll then spend a few days there purchasing materials, assembling the team, and then getting ready for our bus ride to western Rwanda. We'll be at L'Esperance Children's Aid Orphanage from May 29 to June 11 installing the irrigation system. Please follow our progress on our website ( and on our blog ( Thanks for your generous support! We can always use your help!
