"Working with entrepreneurs is a great experience as they have practical experience and I have theoretical experience. It is a great opportunity for me as a student who needs practical examples." – Christian Shema, 22, School of Finance and Banking
UNIVERSITY STUDENT TRAINERS
Indego Africa's award-winning internship program with Generation Rwanda, an NGO that helps orphans and other socially vulnerable young people in Rwanda pursue a university education, continues to set a new standard for how nonprofits can collaborate. More than 18 Generation Rwanda scholars teach Indego Africa's training programs at each partner cooperative.
- Each student trainer participates in Indego Africa's Internship Professional Development program, a "training of the trainers" program, and regular evaluation and certification.
- Student trainers attend a variety of universities in Rwanda, including the Adventist University of Central Africa, the Kigali Institute of Education, the Kigali Institute of Science and Technology, the National University of Rwanda, and the School of Finance and Banking.
- Many student trainers consult on a number of separate Indego Africa projects, and two student trainers have been hired as full-time employees of Indego Africa following their graduation.
