“I went to Rwanda as part of a study abroad program through Virginia Tech. We worked with various NGOs across the country, teaching English and math skills. I personally worked with OPDE. OPDE workes to protect and develop children in Rwanda."

While in Rwanda, Farrel found some free time to R’wander about in the countryside. In his own words, he had “never seen anywhere so green and lush in [his] entire life.”
"The design and vibrant colors immediately caught my eye while I was exploring the local market. The design is local to Rwanda and the pattern is very common on fabrics offered by merchants and tailors.”
Thanks for the Rwa’some fabric find Farrell!
Here’s to R’wandering around in someplace new & to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!

Agriculture is the backbone of Myanmar’s economy.
There are lots of farmers in Myanmar who work hard to support themselves, their families, and their villages with jobs and food.
However, many banks don’t offer capital to farmers for them to purchase enough seeds, equipment, or animals to run their farms efficiently. Due to this, farm productivity in Myanmar is one of the lowest in all of Asia.

"Again we're traveling by our campervan in Germany and our trip led through the Bavarian forest, Elbe sandstone highlands, spree forest, Berlin, and finally to the Harz mountain range.” - Christa Beck
