From a young age, I committed to creating a good change in my community by integrating biodiversity conservation, community health, agriculture, entrepreneurship, climate protection, and sustainable development in Rwanda. Named Top Young Innovator of Rwanda, 2012, I founded and serve as President of BIOCOOP. I have worked in The Nature Conservancy (www.tnc.org) as a short term Consultant and I am the founding member and Vice President of Kuzamura Ubuzima, an NGO working in health, nutrition, and agriculture operating in Butare Referral Hospital (kazumuraubuzima).
