Not long into being Rukundo’s correspondent, I already received a photo update! I’m including all 3 of his pictures below so you can see his growth! (Click on photos to see them larger)
Rukundo is 7 and lives in Rwanda
The letter uses the My Typical Week template. He typically gets up at 6 am. In the morning he typically takes a bath and goes to school. In the evening he typically washes plates and plays with others. He typically goes to sleep at 8 pm. His favorite day of the week is Saturday because he goes to the project to study. The letter says “Dear Alisa, I foremost greet you. I loved the letter you wrote to me and want to answer the questions that you asked me. I have a family, my father, mother, and siblings. I like to study, to play with other children, and my favorite color is yellow. I don’t have a pet but I wish to have one. I like a cow and a goat. When I grow up, I want to become a great player of soccer. I like to go fetch water with other children. I send you a photo of my family as you asked me. Drawings: a flower, a cup, a house, and a car”
The letter mentioned sending a photo, but there isn’t one attached and it doesn’t indicate a photo should be included at the top of the letter. Maybe it means he will send one?
