April 27th to May 27th, 2013

For the third CELE project in Rwanda, ACE trainer Jennifer Nowak travelled to the small town of Kivumu to teach English at the Father Vjeko Centre.  Jennifer taught two classes of 25 students each consisting of bricklayers from the local vocational school.  The students really appreciated the opportunity to improve their English and enjoyed Jennifer's fun and interactive lessons.  They especially liked the lessons involving music and even learned the words to "Its a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong.

For the first ever CELE project, ACE sent a team of two trainers to Kivumu, Rwanda for a special English language teaching opportunity. One trainer, Jayne Carlielle taught English to teachers of other subject matter (tailoring, construction and masonry). The other trainer, Cherie Plamping taught English teachers from the vocational school and local area schools about how to teach English.

The project took place over a three-week period at the Father Vjeko Centre. The Father Vjeko Centre was established in memory of Padri Vjeko in order to empower youths with skills such as building, tailoring, and carpentry. The Centre's aim is to develop the community in Kivumu by impacting uneducated youth so that they may support themselves and their families.  For more information visit the Father Vjeko Centre website.
