Founder travels to Rwanda for Youth Innovation Lab program

This post was written by AYANA's founder, Mahika. 


Earlier this month I flew to Kigali, Rwanda, to be there in person as we launched a new AYANA program in partnership with Rwanda Youth Solutions in Muhanga, Rwanda. 25 bright and creative young people were in attendance at the program. They chose to explore topics including Sustainable Communities, Quality Education, Good Health and Wellbeing, and No Poverty.


 As part of my field visit, I also had a chance to explore Rwanda and learn about it's history of peace and reconciliation after the 1994 genocide. It is quite an inspiring story, and I had these incredible young people to look towards as hope that we can continue to create a brighter, more peaceful future.
