Special thanks to Ms.Yui Mukoji, a first intern at Rwanda Children's Hope!

Ms. Yui Mukoji, a first intern at Rwanda Children's Hope in August 2016 and September 2017, study at Hiroshima City University. She helped us training local staff, researching local poultry project, sharing peace-building stories of Hiroshima, donating computers and an printer - and most importantly teaching how to use computers and a printer. These are just some examples of what she helped us. She helped us by her passion and curiosity in many ways. We really appreciate what you actively have done to our activities! Hope you will come and visit us again someday soon.

We always welcome an intern and/or an active participant to Rwanda Children's Hope at the field in Rwanda or in remote. Please contact us anytime if you are interested in!

Hello, my name is Yui Mukoji who is in the fourth year at Hiroshima City University. I was an exchange student at Butare University in southern Rwanda from March 2016 to February 2017. For 10 days in mid-August 2016 as well as about one week in September 2017, I engaged in activities of Rwanda Children's Hope as an intern.

In the first time visit, having heard about present situation and prospect from Yuiko and Fatier, who are co-representative of Rwanda Children's Hope, I spent my time on information collection of Local Poultry Business to apply for a fund. Shamim, a sister of Fatier, helped me taking to poultry farmers in order to research business risk and cost/profit. I did Home Stay at Fatier and Shamim's places and enjoyed with them local Rwandan food. Enjoying Rwanda life as Rwandan people is one of the greatness of intern activities. 

In the second visit, with donation from ANT-Hiroshima, I purchased a printer for Samaritan International School. I installed it and trained school staff how to use the printer at Samaritan International School. I also read a story of "Paper Crane Journey" in a class and taught how to fold a paper crane for students of Samaritan International School. I still remember how children listened attentively to the story and tried their best to fold cranes. 

I really appreciate Yuiko, Fatier and every staff for truly precious experience that I could have through intern activities.

In this way, having communicated with Yuiko and Fateir ahead, I could suggest and organize my intern activities based on my interest. It should be always a precious opportunity to devote to grass-rooted educational activities with powerful staff. Why don't you challenge yourself to being an intern if you are interested in?
