I am Zoe Barnes and I have been with the project for 3 years now. I am in charge orchids with the genus of Prosthecheas, Sophronitis, and Encyclia. I have also been to Durban south Africa to the BGCI conference with the project.
This afternoon we have the first school, Byimana, arriving for the workshop session. This is our preparation for the 3 different sections.
Today we went to the summit of Mount Bigugu, the highest point in Nyungwe, with a group of Kitabi students. It was a long walk up but they only showed us up a little.
We have had an amazing day today where we took a group of 12 of Kitabi’s students into Nyungwe. They know there forest very well and we were able to learn a lot, as well as teaching them about the orchids.
If you have been following the blog for a long time, you may remember last time we were in Rwanda, I failed to get a photo of a baboon. This time it was no trouble as they were feasting on the rice we dropped from our juggling balls last night.
As part of the trip, we have scheduled in some time to teach school students how to juggle. For this we obviously require juggling balls, however we had to make them first. Although this photo is quite dark you can still make out the rice all over the floor.
