    • I am a Master graduate in Water Policy from Pan African University Institute of Water and Energy Sciences, holding a Bachelor’s Degree with Honors in Water and Environmental Engineering from the University of Rwanda. I am the co-founder of Water and Environment Shield Association (WESA-Rwanda) which is a group of 15 young Rwandan social-preneurs graduated in Water and Environmental Engineering; whose mission is to provide easy access to safe drinking water, improved sanitation and agricultural development to Rwandan rural communities; through engineering projects. I am a committed and self-motivated young woman driven to lead a proactive team towards achieving common goals. I like event initiation and management. In addition, I am very organized, flexible, and attentive to details and I like learning new things. I enjoy teamwork but can also work independently. I am passionate about WASH activities, Education, Climate and Gender advocacy.
