Children of Rwanda #1 : Curiosity

I have just got back from Kigali (Rwanda). There, I was working with three Christian charities Alpha International, Tearfund and Compassion UK. With Alpha, I spoke at a conference they were running in Rwanda, whilst with the latter two I got to observe how they work. I got to see how the charities used donations they received to aid the welfare of children in rural parts of Rwanda. I took this shot on my arrival at the Tearfund project.
