experience. Use it as an informal guide in making your own list,

personally and professionally. You can always have things sent

===General Clothing===
 
  
You may also find that the clothing you bring from home will
 
suffer more wear and tear than usual. Fortunately, used clothing
 
markets abound in Rwanda, even in smaller towns, so it is not
 
necessary to bring two years’ worth of clothes.
