Rwanda

DAYS 7-9

The lack of vaccine production capacity in African countries has been the subject of much concern throughout the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Solving the gravely unequal access to COVID-19 vaccines between developed and developing countries is not only a critical issue for continent of Africa, but a moral imperative for the world as a whole. We meet with senior officials at the Rwandan Ministry of Health and tour vaccine manufacturing facilities built by the German biotechnology company BioNTech in Rwanda.

The Ellen Fund

Days 10-12

Situated at the heart of the Albertine Rift, Rwanda is among Africa’s most biodiverse regions and a haven of rainforest endemism. We travel outside of the city and meet with the Ellen Fund to learn about conservation efforts around the iconic mountain gorilla of the Virunga Massif. This provides the perfect setting to reflect on our journey and what it has meant to us, both individually and as a collective. Looking ahead with ambition and intent, we start the next chapter of our lives with a new understanding of the world, using our learnings to build sustainability-driven organizations and drive initiatives that generate cross-cultural collaboration.
