Doriane commented on Coding Bootcamp meets Refugee Camp

I understand that you want to start the program in Kiziba due to the fact that you already have a campus there. however , I think it would be better if in the middle of the project you think about expanding the program to other camps which are in Rwanda such us Gihembe and Mahama so that you can give a chance to a large group of refugees to improve their lives and also you can think about training a group of refugees who will teach others, that will facilitate the development of the program itself but also improve refugees self-confidence.

Doriane commented on Coding Bootcamp meets Refugee Camp

Dear Chrystina ,

I personally like the idea because I believe that this program will help refugees to expand opportunities on the market . As Rwanda, it is a country which is growing in technology field this will give a higher chance to the refugees to be employed at a higher level and create their own economy as well as their lives . In fact , I still have some questions about how the program will work : will the program be applied in Kiziba camp only? or in all refugee camp in Rwanda and Kenya ? will SNHU be in charge of searching the job opportunities or internship to the students in the program?
