So, yesterday we had a big jam session and hip hop party. All the boys of Les Enfants de Dieu and the dancers we have worked with at Ishyo came together at Les Enfants to break. Then we had a display of traditional Rwandan dance and drumming by the Les Enfants traditional group. And then the party continued with breaking until dark …

Today we said goodbye to the boys. It was very sad for all of us, Catalyst Rwanda team and boys. We have really bonded with these amazing children and young people. Lots of hugs and photos. But as Rafiki (the project manager at Les Enfants) says: it’s ok to say goodbye, because one goodbye means another hello. And we will return.

Once again, THANK YOU to everyone who helped us to achieve this dream.
