Sun Shines Everywhere 3710

Steve Organ had the opportunity to produce a video profiling MindLeaps, a non-profit company that aims to help get Rwanda’s kids off the streets and onto a path to education and a possible future. Using a three-part model, MindLeaps prepares children to succeed in the formal education system while gaining valuable job skills through vocational training. “Naturally, I had to take the Alameda Sun with me and take a photo with the center’s kids to share with Alameda residents,” wrote Organ. “After the photo was taken, they devoured the paper, looking at all the photos and to see what life is like on our lovely island. I’m the guy at the lower left in the striped shirt.”
