KARAGWE TRIP TO REFINE DESIGN PLANS FOR RURAL OPPPORTUNITY CENTERS
January 27. ETI is enroute to Karagwe for the Karagwe 2019 Summit. Visit this blog to hear and see the latest from ETI.
I (Jan) arrived in Amsterdam early today, met up with Bruce Engel at the gate at Schipho, and together, traveled to Kigali, Rwanda. We were picked up at the airport and shuttled to the Five to Five Hotel where we rinsed off the air travel then decompressed with Dr Andrew, Chair of the Rural Opportunity Center (ROC) Task Force and Elgoodness Emmanuel, KAD Engineer/Architect.
We swapped stories about each other’s families and caught up on the latest weather reports (cold and snow over much of the U.S.) We heard about Dr Andrew’s new position overseeing 36 bishops in an ecumenical social services group. It sounded productive but hectic.
Our rooms are beautiful and Kigali looks quite modern. We’re very tired and headed to our rooms in prep for tomorrow.
Thanks for following along.
Follow along with this ETI blog. ETI will do its best to keep folks updated via the website blog, FB and Twitter. Note: This is different than years past. Travelblog, the site ETI used in the past, has deleted participants’ photos (!!) so ETI lost its visual archive for our past trips. To spare further frustration, we house our travel programs on our own blog and invite readers to visit the website to follow along and get all the details.
