The group met at the YEGO office where Carolyn spent time with four students, talking about their knowledge of computers and their dreams for the future. This information is important to make decisions regarding curriculum and the type of computers to buy.

Athanasie and Carolyn inside the new YEGO office, discussing past retreats.

After a delicious lunch they met with the women’s leadership team. There will be women from all parts of Rwanda at the retreats, where they will gain the skills to start women’s groups in their local areas. They shared some African tea and lots of laughs, especially over what Rwandans and Canadians have in common – like saying sorry a lot – and the idiosyncrasies of each culture.
