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.

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!
