November 1 l Rwanda English Project, Deborah & Don Steely with John Mugabo
The Rwanda English Project provides intensive English instruction to teachers in rural schools in Rwanda. The most fluent teachers are then trained to continue instruction with the less proficient teachers in their schools during the rest of the school year. This year 60 teachers serving 3,000 students are receiving training. Starting in November, 75 more teachers will be trained. John Mugabo, director of Millennium Promise Rwanda will be joining the presentation.

November 8 l Matsiko World Orphan Choir
This year the choir is composed of 25 orphaned or at risk children, ages 10 – 18, from Liberia, Peru, Philippines, and India. They travel the US for 10 months performing with the goal of spreading hope and awareness for the over 600 million orphaned children worldwide.
Both of our Interact clubs have adopted the choir as their Interantional project this year – their project is our project.
