Swimming to Rwanda

During the week of August 19th, I will attempt to swim from Europe to Africa by crossing the Strait of Gibraltar.  Swimming 12-14 miles (depending on the currents) exceeds any swim I have undertaken, but I am eager to join the ranks of the fewer than 400 swimmers who have successfully crossed the Strait without a wetsuit.

I am swimming to raise support for Voices Of Rwanda, a video archive dedicated to bringing testimonies of rescapés of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi to high schools, Universities, museums, and research institutions around the globe.

Please watch Claudine (in the link to the right), a rescapée, as she recalls what became of her childhood, and what swimming means to her.

If you are moved to contribute, I would really appreciate it.

Sincerely Yours,Taylor Krauss


Executive Director, Voices of Rwanda
