Invited by Arsenal and partner Visit Rwanda, David and his wife Frankie enjoyed a memorable week long trip to Rwanda at the end of June.
The couple were there to raise awareness of Rwanda as host of The Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, support Rwanda during the Sports Breakfast through the lens of the Arsenal partnership as well as elevate the profile of the breath-taking tourism sites of Rwanda.
The theme for this CHOGM meeting was ‘Delivering a Common Future: Connecting, Innovating, Transforming’. The Sports Breakfast on the 23rd June was a dedicated session to discuss sport in the Commonwealth.
Away from CHOGM, Rwanda also has some of the world’s most amazing tourism sites, including stunning landscape and impressive wildlife. One of the main attractions in Rwanda is visiting the endangered mountain gorillas. At the latest count, there are approximately 1,000+ mountain gorillas in the wild, with 604 in the Virunga Massif. The population is slowly increasing, thanks to concerted efforts between our governments, communities, and NGOs.
