It's that time of year again! Yes, the Harwood Union High School group has returned to Rwanda to continue their partnership with the Land of A Thousand Hills! We were so excited to welcome them at the airport on Tuesday afternoon. Despite being jet-lagged and severely sleep deprived, they were energized to finally be here. This year the trip is a bit different as the Harwood group is joined by a group of teachers and students from Woonsocket High School in Rhode Island AND three people from the Vermont Folklife Center in Middlebury, Vermont.
Follow their experiences on their blog hosted by the Vermont Folklife Center here: http://www.vermontfolklifecenter.org/rwanda/experience/
UPDATE: The Vermont Folklife Center website is currently offline due to hacking. The Harwood blog has been moved to this new location for the remainder of the trip: http://storiesofhope2012.wordpress.com/
