This is the Compassion project base
Compassion staff: John on the left was my guide and translator for the day. Francois in the middle supports the young people with their educational activities and with letter translation. The lady on the right is the Project Director but unfortunately I've forgotten her name.
Meeting Nsengiyaremye at last!
Nsengiyaremye's mother kept thanking me.

Meeting Nsengiyaremye's goat!
Nsengiyaremye's mother insisted we get our photograph taken together
I can't express how good it was to be with Nsengiyaremye
Taken out the back windscreen of the car as we left. The neighbours were out getting a good look. Nsengiyaremye is a gorgeous kid and I feel very privileged to have met him.
