This site aims to give New Zealand school students a taste of life in Rwanda. Each weekday during March 2000, students were able to ask questions, read regular updates, send messages and read information about the lives of Rwandan children.
They heard from Rwandan children whose parents have died, and who must bring up younger siblings on their own, and followed World Vision Rwanda development workers through a typical month of their work.

Rwandan workers kept New Zealand schools up to date with regular stories on the internet site, a weekly fax message, and a weekly audioconference. Students could also ask them questions by using an e-mail form on the internet site.

Students in registered schools could even communicate directly with some of the Rwandan child families, via an interpreter.
