Footsteps Global Initiative


Footsteps in Rwanda

2010 Student Ambassadors

In the spring of 2009, six carefully chosen Charlotte-area students committed to ECHO ABROAD: Footsteps In Rwanda.  As part of this intensive study-travel initiative, these extraordinary students will examine Rwanda ’s culture, history, political system, social structures and educational system, as well as learn about the Partners In Health (PIH) model, and raise scholarship funds for their journey. In the rural community of Rwinkwavu, the Student Ambassadors will work alongside Rwandans on projects to improve education and to build relationships.
