For some time now, Kigalians have been qualified as forgetful at such a point that most of them never think about returning to their country homes.

The same critics suggest that for this reason, children born in the city lack basic knowledge that you can only get from village settings.

“When you ask a child born in Kigali where milk comes from. They will tell you that it comes from a bicycle, referring to the supplier. Most children have never seen a cow,” critics say.

Some families, however, make a difference, especially during the festive season. KT Press came across some captured moments of families that traveled to the village to defy the odds.

However, the list includes other people who went out to have fun with families and friends in natural village environment.
