Volunteering in Rwanda - one second a day film

Chloe is an education volunteer in Rwanda

Chloe created this video, using short clips over a 4 month period of her volunteering experience so far. 


Chloe is a volunteer teacher trainer in Rwanda, working with local schools to strengthen the education system for years to come. She says 

"Everyone I meet is so welcoming. All the volunteers genuinely want to make a difference and are truly passionate. It's great to know that the work I'm doing will continue long after I've left. And it's amazing to step onto a school playground and be surrounded by 100 excited children!"
