The last post...

And so we have all arrived home safe and sound. Well done to all the pupils and staff for working so hard and so well together to make the trip such a memorable adventure!

Au revoir from all the staff - it is definitely time for a rest!

Flying home...

We had a smooth 10 hr flight from Kigali to Amsterdam. We are all feeling somewhat tired but excited to be nearly home!

In Schipol we enjoyed some fresh pancakes and tea - Yum!

Before we left...

We had to relive the fly swatting safari before we left in order to fully recover from the trauma...

The journey home

We have all made it to the airport safe and sound and are looking forward to arriving home!


We said farewell to the CMF team this afternoon. As well as some speeches and exchanging of gifts we had some extra special Rwandan dancing from Babs and Leo...

The dancers:

Bus driver and cleaner - goodbye!

Among the friends we bade farewell to were our bus driver and our cleaner - both of whom had been very good to us during our stay.

Sharing a goat!

We had a fabulous last lunch at the centre today. Delicious goat brochettes, bananas in peanut sauce, salad, potato skins, pineapple and watermelon. We also shared some Fanta together to celebrate our time here:

Dance championship!

There was a dance off at the CMF children's party yesterday. Leo was the star performer and he won hands down!

Well done Leo!


We had some fun with the suitcase sponsors stickers. These pics are for you Mrs Offord...

SACCA handover

We visited the girls SACCA centre to handover 3 of the iPads we brought:

Executive Secretary

We dropped Gordon off at the Muhazi sector headquarters where he successfully installed a wifi router. We also gave them an iPad to assist with communication across the sector.
