HARMONY SCHOOL/READY FOR READING, RWINKWAVU
The Rwinkwavu Community Library and Learning Center is home to Harmony School, TEACH Rwanda's second Exemplary School, which opened in 2015. The school has one preschool classroom with morning and afternoon sessions. Emyme Dufitumukiza, the lead teacher, and Odette Mukamurenzi, assistant are the two experienced teachers. Both of them continue to be mentored by Anitha Meleka, TEACH Rwanda's Teacher Mentor.
Rwinkwavu is a small village on the road to Akagera National Wildlife Park. Although zebra, elephants, lions, giraffes, and baboons live just minutes away, few children or teachers in this low-income area ever have the opportunity to see them. Goats, cows, and chickens, on the other hand, are part of their lives. Teachers, especially those who live in Rwanda’s Eastern Province, and visitors to the library, find a remarkable, lively, modern classroom, where children learn through play, on site!
