The WLTI participants don't speak English and we don't speak Kinyarwanda. Yep, that's a problem. Or at least it should be a problem or at least a major obstacle.
To hep bring this gap, Beth one of our team members taught a basic English lesson each day.
It's amazing how knowing a few simple phrases in another person's native language can lessen the distance between us.
As we worked on our Kinyarwanda and they worked on English -- we took another step closer to each other!
