Indatwa Class of 2014 Graduation

On January 8, 2015, we celebrated the third graduating class of Agahozo Shalom Youth Village.  The Indatwa class chose their name during their first year at the village as an inspiration throughout their four years.  Indatwa most closely means “role model,” which these students have absolutely done throughout their incredible accomplishments during their time at ASYV.  It was such a joy to share in the celebration of their graduation – and subsequently help a number of graduating students with their applications to universities and preparation programs through my work at the Career Development Center! Mabel dressed us up in traditional Rwandan dress.

I made this short video to commemorate the day, and the 122 graduates.

You can see more of my photos from graduation on my photography page, or the full album here.

Congratulations, Indatwa Class of 2014! We can’t wait to watch you change Rwanda and the world!
