Dawes visit Gihembe Refugee Camp in Rwanda. The band got the opportunity to meet some of these refugees and learn about their lives and the challenges they face daily. Here, Dawes plays “How Far We’ve Come” at a youth center, where the band also donated percussion instruments.

Another incredible day hearing seriously smart kids talk about their thirst for knowledge and grinning passion to model family for their 15,000 fellow Conglese refugees in the Gihembe camp. Extra creativity points for toothbrush storage for lil Claude and his 11 siblings who share this tiny abode. #Rwanda #dentalhygiene @thesenumbers
