We have a team WhatsApp group. It’s great for staying connected. My favourite times are when any of us are travelling and there is a flurry of photos. This week, Xav and Cristina have been in Rwanda, visiting Kopakama, Kopakaki and Abakundakawa and working from our newly established Twin office in Rwanda with Pascasie, Jean-Claude, Emmanuel and Sylvia. Exciting times!

We’re working on broadening our Sustainable Agriculture programme in Rwanda to hopefully work with all of these cooperatives more soon.
