The Plan & Process
Booked my ticket - my planned arrival into Kigali is on 08.08.08 at 8:00 am. (The number "8" is a very lucky number in Chinese culture and I'm hoping this landing date will reflect the rest of the trip!)
I will be staying in Taylor's house during my time in Kigali. I'm excited to meet the myriad of interesting and dedicated people living with him. A revolving crew of journalists, photographers, health care professionals and designers use his house as a home base during their various assignments in the area.
Through some research, I found an incredibly talented photographer named Kresta King Cutcher Venning, who documented some of these children while she was there a few years ago. After seeing these photos, I really wanted to help out there. I got in contact with Heather Metcalfe and spoke with her about her experience there, as I planned on volunteering there.
