This site is intended to allow students of Harwood High School write, share images, sounds and music as they experience the transformational journey to Rwanda.
The intent of this space is for students to share their thoughts and observations before, during and after the trip in February 2017. The students may keep some of their content private but can make other posts public for all to see and comment upon.
This site holds the Legacy of this project -- shared experiences of students from as far back as 2010. Enjoy.
This site is maintained and monitored by Young Writers Project, a small nonprofit based in Vermont that helps youths across the world improve their writing and digital media skills. YWP is proud to have played a small part in this project all these years.
YWP will be looking for exceptional pieces to post on its main site -- youngwritersproject.org -- and its publications. We encourage youths to create their own accounts on youngwritersproject.org to get a wider audience for their work which has been, historically, fascinating.
We're only four days into our trip to Rwanda and it's felt like weeks. Our days have been filled with trips to schools, the streets of Kigali and a museum. It’s been a whirlwind of emotions and cultural experiences.
