IDEA4Africa honored three extraordinary students with the IDEA Award presented at the Annual Celebration.
Justus Uwayesu, Rosine Ndayishimiye and Jonathan Iyandemye earned this recognition by modeling the Entrepreneurship and Action mindset they learned in our Seminar (under the Babson Entrepreneurial and Leadership Academy) in 2011.
All 3 have already exemplified the very best in entrepreneurship by working to remedy problems they saw in their communities whether it be to provide education for all children regardless of their ability to pay, providing healthy foods for high school students or educating other students on computer skills. And these were the ventures they started while still in high school!
Where are they now?
Jonathan and Justus are graduating from Harvard University next month. Rosine will be graduating from Babson College in May.
As nearly 100 people gathered to honor these stellar Rwandan students and their amazing journeys, everyone left feeling that this world will be a more constructive and better place with them in it.
