Very inspiring work interviewing successful young people, and writing and publishing their mini-bios. I enjoyed all of it!

Fiacre and Rodriguez, my hosts, were welcoming, showed me around, and made delicious food - usually vegetarian. My room was private, locked, comfortable and roomy.

I had an amazing experience working with Fiacre on MyStoryHouse! Fiacre is a wonderful host and make sure that I had a great time on Kigali, not only working together but also showing me around everything that Rwanda is all about!

I have been to a few volunteer experiences and I have to say that Byumba is up there with all the others. A nice change from city life with amazing people and the countryside is stunning. I lived in the library for almost two weeks and to wake up surrounded by books and then to help the amazing little people will take a very long time to fade in my memory. Francis will host you and look after the housekeeping side of things and the rest will pretty much look after itself. Life here is very basic so if you're expecting luxury then this isn't for you, I loved it))

Thank you, David, for the days you spent at our library in Byumba!! David has offered a lot to our children that always come to our library. Most of the time he was helping the children with reading books, creating designs and draws thus boasting their ways of thinking. He also brought a new concept where he could show the children some movies and at the end of the day discussing what they saw in the movies thus helping the kids to learn new words. In terms of our project, David contributed a lot by generating new thoughts on how we can improve our project to be more effective. David is a flexible guy who adapts quickly with the changes.
