Anna hanging out Nadia, Shadia and Roger
Welcome Anna Labarias, our newest volunteer here at Imbabazi! Hailing from Montreal, Canada, Anna has a degree in art history and is currently working on another degree in art education. She aspires to work in the field of art therapy and use creativity as a means of solving conflicts and bringing people together.
Anna arrived just in time for school vacation, so the kids will have a lot to keep them busy over the next few weeks while they are home. She will be here for two months working on art and other projects with our children, including a mural in the dining room, indigo dying and puppets. Anna is multilingual and speaks French, Spanish and English.
Our new volunteer room
Anna is the first official guest in our brand new volunteer dorm. We can now accommodate up to 10 volunteers at a time and hope to expand the number of beds in the near future. If you or someone you know is interested in coming to volunteer and/or spend time at Imbabazi, please contact us at
