WHY THIS CAMPAIGN

I am running this campaign to get my year 1 tuition fees at African Leadership University(ALU). I have been admitted to study Computer Science at ALU in 2018 but unfortunately, my parents couldn't afford to pay my tuition fees; $ 1,000. So I decided to defer my admission to 2019 in order to look for funds. So far I've managed to raise $500 from part-time jobs that I've been doing in the past 5 months. I need $500 to get full tuition fees.

VISION AND ACHIEVEMENTS

VISION

I want to digitize trade small economies in Africa by using technology to connect them to opportunities like modern trade ecosystem to increase profitability. It's in that case that I co-founded a startup called Ironji Trade Ltd with a vision of connecting the fresh food trade ecosystem. I believe that getting a university education will help me continue to work towards my big goal to Africa.

ACHIEVEMENTS

I became the eight best student in sciences National Examination 2017 in the whole of Rwanda. Later on, I was selected among 25 Rwandans to attend MIT Global Startup Labs (GSL) where I co-founded a startup called Ironji Trade Ltd. After GSL, Ironji Trade Ltd was selected among ten Rwandan companies to attend Toyota Mobility Ideathon 2018 and among two African startups to attend Slush GIA 2018. Once at ALU, I hope to achieve more.
