The program works by matching CMU-Africa graduate international students with a family interested in serving as Kigali/Rwanda ambassadors. These students and families will build relationships that best fit their needs, agreeing to meet every month or so at mutually convenient times. The volunteer host family will play a large role in offering the international student(s) a view of another country, culture and develop a lifelong connection with the student.
In addition to the traditional Host Family, we are also hoping to provide students with the opportunity to connect with a professional who has been successful in the industry and build a relationship with that person to serve as a resource in their career development.
