You’re leaving your friends, your fam and your city
To better this world, with a non-profit committee.
Embarking on a journey, across sea, across sand
To land in Kigali and offer your hand.
You’re changing the lives of the people you meet
Something that couldn’t be done working down on Wall Street.
You made the decision to get up and go
Be confident now, no worry, no woe.
Pay no mind to others who can’t understand
Your passion and love for this far away land.
Your journey is starting, and Rwanda awaits
So hop on that plane, bid adieu to the States
You’re teaching great skills and opening your heart
Embracing this world like it’s your work of art.
With compassion and care, and your dedication
One child at a time, you’re changing that nation.
So Hello Rwanda, Land of One Thousand Hills
Kathleen has arrived with dreams to fulfill!
