Last weekend, we spent a night at the Virunga Safari Lodge in northern Rwanda. While there, we took the village trail to Mwiko Primary School, a public school that receives support from the hotel.
There is an inspiring mural of the students’ hopes for their school on one of its buildings.
Below, on the right side of the mural, there are classrooms and well-built latrines* with a hand-washing station.
There is also a computer, a teacher talking about HIV-AIDS, and students and teachers joined by love. The organization Mothering Across Continents mentors teachers at the school and sponsored the mural.
The children currently raise rabbits in pens behind the school.
The school’s motto is “knowledge, wisdom, hope.”
