Gisimba Website Launch - Iowa State University


Here's another great group people that are trying to help Gisimba Orphanage as well! Their site also lists two different types of sustainable project proposals the orphanage is trying to get funded to earn money.

The website is a collaboration between Iowa State University students Teresa Atkins, Rebecca Braet, Jeanna Bauer, Angel Ceaser, Jessica Crawford, Mackenzie Quame; Rwanda peer and volunteer, Dominick Ntirushwa; Patron of the Gisimba Memorial Orphanage in Kigali, Mr. Ildephonse Niyongana ; Dr. John Musiime (Kigali Institute of Education) and Dr. Leah Keino at Iowa State. This was a Service Learning Program for ISU students who spent 2 weeks in Rwanda in May 2008.

The ISU team was introduced to the Center by Lisa Holmes of Washington State University. Lisa has also hosted a number of Rwandan youth including Dominick.

It is expected that KIE and ISU students will continue to collaborate and be of service to Gisimba Orphanage.
