We spent a day visiting the various enterprises that have been set up with support from Rwanda Aid.
We actually went shoe shopping and bought some stunning flip flops ! All the shoes have soles made from recycled tyres.
We then dropped in at Keza restaurant where Rwanda Aid have bought them the equipment to enable them to serve a buffet style lunch.
Our next visits were to a welder to see their windows being fitted and a team of carpenters who take 3 days to make bespoke beds.
A real treat was seeing the cards we sell at the Christmas Fair being made.
Jane has often received a goat or a cow for her birthday. These are purchased on the Rwanda Aid website and given to a family. They are taught how to care for them and it often enables them to pay for their children’s school fees .
Rwandan farmers are full of vibrant colour and glamour !
Our final visit was to the fruit man, who with the right equipment is able to produce some delicious juices, including pineapple , passion fruit and hibiscus.
A huge thank you to Jonas the Enterprise Manager and Jerome the Farm Manager for showing us these fabulous projects.
