Twenty nine flasks of orchid seedlings are all packed with their phyto and import permits. We are sure that they will receive a warm welcome from students in our partner schools and soon there will be Rwandan school orchid seedlings ready to travel the other way.
We are all packed and ready to go. It has come to the point where I am counting down the hours. It isn’t long now.
With two days to go. It is time to start taking malaria tablets
We are lucky to have two of the best teachers. This is Simon Pugh-jones and Chantal Ndikumana. They are the teachers who are going to Rwanda.
Jake is our economics expert and an enthusiast for supporting development in Rwanda. Here he is discussing the in-vitro orchids we are taking with us with our local FERA plant health inspector. The good news is that our plants now have a phytosanitary certificate to go with their import certificate.
