We are so excited to return to Rwanda and connect with the WLTI women.
This time we will be addressing Women's Realities including physical development, sexuality, reproductive health, women's health issues and trauma.
In addition to the conference we will also offer a vision clinic. Last time we visited our team was able to conduct a vision screening for 71 individuals. A woman who is dependent on making baskets was thrilled as she is now able to thread her needle for the very first time. A man who dropped out of school years ago is planning to return to school and finish his education because he can now see the blackboard. And these are just two of the stories!
The team consists 7 women -- -- three 20-somethings, one-40 something and three-50 somethings.
5 returners - (this is good news since we'll be delving in to some intense and personal topics - so already having established relationships is an important place to start)
corinne gunter, team lead, pastor -- teaching team member
jama davis, counselor, professor -- teaching team lead
jennifer conley, emergency room nurse with a specialty in sexual assault - teaching team
