After working with the teachers we got to visit their schools the next day to observe their classes and to see how they applied what they learned working with us in their classroom. Most of the classes I visited was the subject social studies. I just sat back and observed and took notes.

The next school we went to my teacher took the students outside. They first circled up and breathed in together. Then they played Ha-lo but the way they played was by hi fiving each other with both hands and saying HA. I thought that was a unique spin on the game and I found it really refreshing to watch because they made the game their own. After they played my favorite game, Amazi and Kombe. I joined and played on the sideline. I had a great time watching them play and have fun with the games.
After visiting the school we had our final dinner at The Urukundo Foundation center with Mama and the kids. After dinner the AFP village put on a show (except for me I was taking pictures as you can see) of the story Goldie Locks and The Three Bears. The kids played different objects in the story from tables to doors, beds, and bowl's of porrige. It was a really beautiful show and the children did an amazing job and I will miss them. I can't wait to come back to see them again and to play with them.
My name is Janae' Leonard and I'm a senior Theatre major at Buffalo State. Since I was a little girl I always dreamed of traveling and seeing the world. The one place where I dreamed of going was to Africa. The motherland, the place where life started. I want to go to Rwanda to experience different cultures, hear stories, and learn how to not only love myself but how to give and show love to others in different ways. I want to show people in Rwanda that they matter and their stories matter. It took me a while to understand that I mattered and that my story matters and so I want to show what I learned and express it through love. I plan to go to Rwanda open minded and open hearted. I want to take in as much as I can and bring it back home with me where I can share everything I learned and felt through story, song, acting and other mediums.
