Rwanda: Mahama Training Week 3

We explained to the trainees that the next day we would work with children from the village, and they would lead workshops of drumming, songwriting and movement. Stage one of the workshops would be to go into the community and talk with the children and their families and to invite them to participate. The result was 80 children, including street children and homeless youth, singing and smiling in community music-making.

This was the practical experience assignment during the third week of training for this group of trainees. The trainees are from Burundi, living in Rwanda as refugees at Mahama camp. http://mwb.ngo
