    The programme will involve learning from the environment, community and education leaders and aid groups in Rwanda as well as from our Astronaut led team. You will have the opportunity to work with young people in Rwanda who need literacy and educational support.

    Programme Goal:

    Learn together and engage with Rwandan Communities to develop a global community of young people in the UK and Rwanda. Be a part of establishing an IT platform and network of interactive collaboration support to cultivate literacy, digital literacy, future leadership, life skills and attitudes necessary for active citizenship.

    Be a part of increasing young people’s abilities to find employment, be advocates for the most vulnerable, be agents of change and empower them to care for their dependents and end cycles of neglect.
