CITW Rwanda – Gishwati Environmental Club & Scholarship Update

Wilderness Rwanda’s impact initiatives are hard at work in the area around Gishwati-Mukura National Park, where, in addition to a burgeoning reforestation project, Children in the Wilderness (CITW) is partnered with Gisunzu Primary School and Kinihira Secondary School.

The last term of the school year is in full swing at both schools, and our CITW Environmental Clubs get together every Wednesday afternoon – always highly informative meetings filled with enthusiasm and laughter.

We wish all the students a successful end to their school year, with June being filled with important year-end exams and other closing events.

With this in mind, a parent-student meeting was organised by our CITW Rwanda team, Aline and Jean Damascene, for the 35 students here who receive a CITW scholarship.

Topics including discipline, respect, school results, teamwork, good communication and necessary coaching were covered, to ensure the best possible outcome for all the students.

Besides the above discussion points, Aline and Jean Damascene also established a parent committee at the school through a vote amongst all the parents. The parent committee will ensure streamlined lines of communication between our CITW team, the school, the students and the parents.
