An internship... the first!

Maddy is doing some incredible things with kids with special needs.
I think she is one of few, if not the only one, in Rwanda that is trained and has a deep passion to work with these kids. She is currently working with 15 students and their families from nursery to highschool age. Some have Downs Syndrome, other have varying degrees of autism, some with other learning disabilities. There is not program or resources here so she's developing each and every day!

Her vision... to see all kids with special needs integrated into society here in Rwanda.

A very cool thing has happened.
A local supermarket has agreed to employ one of her high school kids

Read about it in her blog!

May this internship be the first of many!

She loves on our kids too!!
