Rwanda is now slowly easing up on shelter-in-place restrictions and the country is fortunate enough to have no deaths. During quarantine, many of our past students found creative ways to continue serving their community. Kevine Kagirimpunda and Ysolde Shimwe, both class of 2014 alum and owners of UZURI K&Y, made sure that their brand stayed fresh in the minds of consumers by keeping an active presence on social media. The fashionable shoe producers also hosted live events with partners via Instagram such as workouts, live music, and personal development.
Goretti Kabuto, class of 2008, used her time at home to help produce masks.
Clarisse Iribagiza, class of 2013, is using her software company to help supply food and products ordered online.
Liliane Uwukuli, class of 2014, and Anita Ahayo, class of 2019, both have medical clinics that are helping to ease the COVID-19 facilities by taking in all other cases that are not related to the virus.
Jeanne Izabiliza, class of 2020, has been using her company, Heart of Africa Trading LTD, to help import goods. So as you can see, our alumnae are doing an amazing job of paying it forward and serving their communities.
We are so proud to be in association with these women who are facilitating such warm feelings of fellowship during a difficult time.
