K2CT World Cup in My Village Kick Off in Rwanda

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:40 am by kampala2capetown

In Rwanda the World Cup in my Village kicked off with excitement and a local flavor. The United Nations family has reserved the football stadium in Gisenyi for all 30 days so kids from the village will be enjoying games on the the large inflatable screen every night.

The crowed arrived early and was greeted by a live band on a specially built stage thanks to local community host Vision Jeunesse Nouvelle.

Over 3,000 people showed up and were treated to traditional and modern dance, acrobats and a local band playing Rwandan and International Music.

By the time the sun set and darkness fell, a few local and UN diginataries gave opening remarks and the cheered as the France vs Uruguay game. A great start for World Cup in my Village!
