Geofrey commented on Makerspace and engineering teaching laboratory for youth

Hi Alphonse, 

I am impressed by your idea since it will be supporting youth to achieve their full potential through lab practicals. That is one way of supporting science and technology in Rwanda that will in return bring tangible results to our communities. As said by president Paul Kagame that "Africa cannot just remain a story, about huge potential that never materializes". To materialize those potentials I think it has to start through young people like you and I thorough amazing projects like this one. Winafrica will be excited to work with incoming Makerspace lab to create a platform that gives opportunity to young people have access on the open resources, help them achieve their potentials through connecting them with organizations that are in need of their skills. 
I will be glad to to help and support you if I can !

Geofrey commented on Coding Bootcamp meets Refugee Camp

Hi Chrystina, 

This sounds like an amazing project. I am very sure that this will be an incredible opportunity for less privileged youth living in refugee camps in East Africa. As Rwandan economy is moving towards a digital industry and the government's education policy  emphasizing  and encouraging tech classes and smart ideas, I believe that this is a good timing to bring this solution in East Africa. Also as a beneficiary of one of your earliest projects with SNHU, I believe with no doubt that you are the right person to implement this project and make it a success. As always, we are very excited to support you in case you  may realize that there is a way we can contribute to make this project a success. 

Good luck,
Geofrey
