I’m a 30 year-old civil and environmental engineer (that’s the boring part) but I also have an insatiable curiosity for new cultures, places, languages.
Why this team?
Because with these teammates, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Why this project?
Because for me, poverty is best defined as a lack of opportunity and the most appropriate answer to eradicate it is the empowerment of local communities, which is exactly what Kageno, the local NGO we will be working for, proposes with this eco-tourism project in Rwanda.
Are you excited?
I’m particularly excited to go back to Africa, 3 years after my last experience there. The team, the project and the country are all excellent reasons to be excited!
